Braughing Play Area
An enthusiastic group of volunteers are aiming to raise money to rebuild Braughing's worn out playground with exciting new equipment.
The play area is old, uninviting, the wood is rotting and it no longer meets the needs of the community. Most items of equipment need attention or replacing. We want to make Braughing play area welcoming and fun. It will be a place where the locals can meet and play together, this will become increasingly necessary as the village continues to expand and our population grows.
There is very little opportunity for older children to play with their younger siblings as the equipment is mainly designed for children under 8 as the older child's interest is not sustained by our current equipment.
The playground received its annual RoSPA inspection in July 2014 which highlighted ‘severely limited disabled access presenting serious barriers to disabled people. We aim to make our play area accessible to everyone and have undertaken a wide community consultation, which will result in equipment that the community has chosen. The equipment has been chosen to challenge and engage children in a variety of ways to develop their confidence, balance, co-ordination and improve their health.
Please support this effort to improve a facility for Braughing chldren and visitors to the area. More information is on the Facebook page here >>> You can also support the group by voting for an Aviva grant here >>> and through Local Giving here >>>
