We are super excited about the official launch of our new playground on Saturday 10 September 2016 at 12.30 p.m. We do hope you can join us to celebrate this huge community success. Our event coincides with the Old Coulsdon Village Fair which takes place on the same day from 12 to 4.30 p.m.
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.
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.
The Friends have some exciting news which we will share with you all very soon. Watch this space.................
