West Parley's new childrens Play Park now open
23 April 2011
Brand new Play Area achieved - despite losing Government Funding.
West Parley Parish Council were originally allocated £35,000 from the Government Playbuilder Scheme. The present government having decided that Playbuilder Grants would no longer be 'ring-fenced' for that sole purpose, Dorset County Council have used the Grant to support other Childrens Services.
A great new facility for West Parley
Despite this disappointment, the Parish Council have managed to produce a very satisfactory (though less ambitious) Play Area from its own funds. The natural looking, ecologically-themed attraction was designed and constructed by Matt Reeks of East Dorset Countryside Management Services and Simon Clarke of Simon Clarke Fencing, and is now fully open.
The many compliments we have received from the users of this Play Area, make us justifiably pleased and proud of our legacy. An Official Opening has been arranged for a future date. Do please visit and let us have your feedback.
