When the Parish Council was established the play area on Townfield had received minimal investment for many years. As a result of the support of the Parish Council there have been two major investment projects, £78,000 in 2009 and £60,000 in 2020. Although most of the money came from developer contributions and a government Playbuilder grant the Parish Council did invest a total of £7,000 as an expression of our commitment to the project. More importantly the Parish Council managed the consultation process with parents and children in order to establish that we were delivering what users wanted.

The Parish Council has now taken over full responsibility for the play area and we have secured a further £12,000 of developer contributions that will be used for future maintenance.
