Play Equipment in Stafford Orchard Park
on from success with the skateboarding ramp and youth shelter for
older children, the Parish Council decided to refurbish the play equipment
for the younger ones. The old wooden equipment was showing signs of
wear and tear and so councillors and parents got their heads together
to design a completely new area.
The final design brief was put out to tender and although not the cheapest,
Wicksteed Leisure came up with a scheme which most closely met our requirements.
The original price was £22,200 but a last minute grant from the
County Council has enabled us to fence in the multiplay unit, bringing
the new total to £27,239.00.
Parish Council £10,000
David Wilson Homes £5,000 (section 106 planning agreement)
Astra Zeneca £985
Quorn Country Hotel £100
The total funding is £30,081. The remaining money will be spent
on seating, litter bins and general maintenance and tidying of the park.
The Parish Council is extremely grateful to the funding bodies and the
parents who worked with us in creating this project.
