We are very pleased to announce that the Hollands Way Playground Project has been awarded £9972 of funding from the National Lottery Community Fund!

This brings us much closer to our target of £65K, with only about £10K left to raise to build a fantastic playground for Warnham Parish.

A big thank you to the players of the National Lottery and to those who have donated so far by cheque and through our crowdfunding page www.spacehive.com/hollands-way-playground-project

Calling local businesses and residents! Would you like to sponsor all or part of an item of equipment in the new playground? An itemised list of the new equipment can be found here: https://www.spacehive.com/hollands-way-playground-project#/costs and donations will be recognised by way of a plaque in the playground.

Please continue to spread the word and help us meet our target!

Hollands Way Playground Revamp

The Parish Council are hoping to revamp the Hollands Way Playground next to the Village Hall with a working group of parents, residents and parish councillors.

This is such an important space for children to play and socialise and the working group wants to be sure that what is provided, is exactly what the village needs and wants.

What is proposed?

The proposed design includes a bespoke multiplay unit with multiple climbing apparatus and unique broad slide, a new toddler play unit with steps, slide and lookout platforms, bouncy lily pads, stand-up see-saw, trim trail, pick-up-sticks climbing frame and several other items. The toddler swings will be refurbished with the cableway, aerial rotating swing and the swings remaining as they are and but the fence between the two areas will be removed to provide a more inclusive playspace for the range of ages.

How will it be funded?

The Parish Council are planning for the project to be funded through various sources including Section 106 money from housing developments around the parish, Parish Council reserves and through fundraising.  Please visit our Spacehive crowdfunding page to find out more about the project and make a pledge to help this project be delivered! www.spacehive.com/hollands-way-playground-project.

The design

Eibe have produced this fantastic design that is based around Warnham’s historical deer park and has a rustic and rural theme.

We would be very grateful if you could take the time to look at the designs and let us know any comments or thoughts you have. Any suggestions for additional items of play equipment or picnic benches, or other seating are welcome too.

Have your say!
