Exciting times!

The Friends are delighted with the way the new playground is coming into fruition.  The new playground is the culmination of several thousands of hours' fundraising, consultation and design development by the Friends of Grange Park- this time given freely by a team of around 8 volunteers- and is not a council led project.  We have been advised that the works should be completed before the end of August 2016, dependent on the availability of various sub-contractors.  This should mean that our children are able to enjoy the playground before returning to school.  

New, inclusive playground to be built in Old Coulsdon THIS SUMMER!

The Friends are delighted that we can finally reveal that we have raised £100,000 in funding to build a new and inclusive playground in Grange Park this summer!  We owe great thanks to the support of our community, but also the significant pledges made by Biffa Award, London Marathon Charitable Trust and Macquarie Group Foundation.  Please see below for our press release which we have released today.

Forthcoming Easter Eggstravaganza!

We would be delighted to see you all again at our Easter Eggstravaganza which is once again taking place over the Easter weekend on Saturday 26th March 2016.  Come and enjoy our Easter trail (offering a standard size Cadbury's Easter egg as a reward!), bouncy castle fun, face-painting, delicious home-made bakes from the Old Coulsdon Cupcakes W.I.'s stall, arts and crafts with the Under 3s and more.  This is another fantastic opportunity to raise significant funds for the playground.  We look forward to seeing you there :-)
