Improve Puddletown's Run Down Facilities For Kids

8:07am 7th December 2013

Calls are being made for major improvements to be made to a dilapidated play park in Puddletown.

Local residents have set up a community group to campaign for changes to be made to Puddletown Community Play Park. The park has had no new equipment or renovation works since it was built in the early 90s.

The group are asking local children, parents and grandparents to have their say on what changes they want to see made to the park. So far they have had over 200 responses to a survey about the project.

Lucy Darby is part of the campaign committee group. She said: "It's really important to take the whole communities views into account, then we can see what people's needs are and talk to the parish council and work on getting funding. "

The group hope to make the park a central hub of the community for children of all ages. Lucy said: "The facilities there at the moment aren't that great and they don't cater for all the age ranges. Puddletown has got so much bigger since the play park was made, we're trying to get a new play park that suits the community's needs."

The group are holding a fundraising event at the end of January, Lucy said: "We're hoping to hold a fun day in the village hall with a band and lots of events going on, we're hoping to get some raffle prizes donated by local businesses."

You can have your say on the renovations by filling out an online survey before December, 9 at www.surveymonkey.com/s/puddletown or get in touch with the group by liking their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/puddletownplaypark.
