Play Equipment in Stafford Orchard Park

 play equipment Following 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.

Grants were:

Parish Council £10,000
WREN £8,000
SHIRE £4,636
David Wilson Homes £5,000 (section 106 planning agreement)
Astra Zeneca £985
LaFarge £1,360
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.
