LAST year it was very disappointing when the application to the Playbuilder fund to pay for new play equipment in Hunsbury Hill Park failed. Even more so, when it was announced that the Playbuilder fund had ended.
Now, some great news – funding for play equipment has been agreed. Both Hunsbury Hill Park and Shelfleys Park will see new equipment this year.
£30,000 has been allocated to Hunsbury Hill Park by the Lib Dem Borough Council, after years of campaigning by the Friends of Hunsbury Hill Park.
The money allocated by the developers of the West Lake estate will be used to improve the play equipment in Shelfleys Park.
Children, parents and grandparents will be delighted, particularly at a time of council cuts.
Fortunately the Lib Dem Borough Council has worked hard to save money over the last 4 years, so they can afford this work without cuts to frontline services or mass redundancies.Leave a comment
