The Parish Council is pleased to confirm that new play equipment for the Governors' Field is now on order.
Congratulations and a huge vote of thanks goes to the Woodborough GREAT team, led by Ian Brown. WIth energy, creativity and commitment, not to mention hundreds of hours of hard work, they have masterminded a new layout full of modern and exciting equipment and importantly have secured significant grant funding from 3 bodies, meaning that the Parish will be required to meet less than a third of the cost.
Colin Starke, GREAT team member and Parish Councillor said:
"As you will probably already have heard, new play equipment for Governor’s Field is no longer a dream! The Woodborough GREAT team reached its fundraising target and has just ordered a whole new range of exciting and challenging play equipment which will be installed on the Field this summer. Thanks to grants from WREN, the Samuel Eden Trust, Nottinghamshire County Council, profits from last year’s Street Market stall and the GREAT quiz night, several donations from residents, and a substantial contribution from our Parish Council, we will have GREAT new play facilities for our young people to start enjoying in a few months’ time. Inevitably Governor’s Field must be closed for several weeks to allow our supplier to install the new equipment. This is likely to be from mid June to mid July, so that it is ready for the summer holidays. An exact date for the start of the installation will be announced later. We hope that all users of the Field will bear with us during the closure."
