After a couple of setbacks the playground refurbishment is now making good steady progress.
A fantastic boost to funds has come from members of Carnforth Rotary Club who, with match funding from Rotary District 1190, have generously contributed £5,000 to purchase the Hide & Slide item of play equipment. Their support is greatly appreciated.
The Mike Rigby Bowls Trophy raised £316 for the playground, many thanks to Bowling Club members for their efforts and to Sheila Rigby for nominating Community Playground Project to be the recipient of funds raised.
An application for a grant to Lancaster Green Spaces for £500 towards the cost of trees was successful and Lancaster Community Fund has donated £500 towards the project.
After a successful, well supported year of fundraising the playground will reach its full potential and when completed will provide the community of Bolton-le-Sands with a recreational area they can thoroughly enjoy and be proud of. Thank you to all who have contributed in any way to make this eagerly anticipated playground refurbishment possible.
