We are delighted to inform you all that we have been awarded the full amount of funding we applied for from the recycling company, Viridor Credits. This will enable us to complete the first stage of our project in providing much-needed play equipment for older children, improve the existing playground by replacing the surface, installing an all-inclusive roundabout and a self-shutting gate and a trail circuit involving balance for younger children. We will also purchase more seats placing them where the lovely panoramic views can be best seen from the field.
Thank you to all those who have given their enthusiastic support especially to all the children whose many pictures were sent with the application and surely played a big part in its success.
Many trees ( very small whips as yet) and spring bulbs have been planted around the field and we hope to plant much larger trees in spring. Thank you to all those who worked so hard in the cold weather to achieve this.
As soon as the weather improves, work will start on improving access at the entrances on Hazel Drive, Whitecotes Close and Hucklow Avenue.
Meanwhile, we are going to try our utmost to secure more funds for the installation of paths right across the field.
Finally HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone from the Friends of Whitecotes Playing Field.
