Over the winter of 2019/2020 Hollesley Parish Council applied for numerous grants for the new Play Park Equipment. In many cases we were successful but in one major application, to the National Lottery, unfortunately we were not

After deliberation, the Council decided to continue with the project but to split it in to two or three phases, instead of installing all the equipment in one go. So, we turned to our intrepid Play Ambassadors and asked for their opinions. We asked them to list their top five pieces of equipment and they happily responded. They chose: an accessible Roundabout, a Sling Rotator, a Cantilever Swing, a Giant Snake Swing and a Twin Aerial Runway. All these pieces of equipment are suitable for differing ages and abilities and the Parish Council would like to thank the Ambassadors for their well thought out suggestions.

We have also heard from all funding suppliers and they are happy we use their funds in a ‘phased approach’ to this project so the formal order to NGF Play has been submitted. Of course, this current pandemic will probably mean the project delivery is delayed considerably but we are sure it will be worth the wait.
