TEEN PLAY AREA:
Ideally we would love to get a thrilling adventure area for our teenagers but fundraising is really slow for large projects. The equipment being considered is:
- Skate/Wheels Park
- MUGA – multi use games area with nets
- Large Swing
- Woodland area shelter/seating
OUTDOOR GYM DETAILS:
The outdoor gym was installed in Sept. 2015 and has been kindly funded by: The Big Lottery Awards for All, Ecclesfield Parish Council, J. G. Graves, North Sheffield Area TARA, Sheffield Town Trust, Sheffield Church Burgess Fund plus Friends contributions and development money. Many thanks to all our sponsors.
Oct 16: We have just obtained some funds from Sheffield Ward Pot for some free TASTER SESSIONS on the equipment to be provided by Places for People – check out Facebook page for update on dates and times – this started at the end of October and is scheduled for most Saturday mornings from 10a.m. to 11.30 a.m.
WILDFLOWER MEADOW DETAILS:
We received a grant in 2014 from First TransPennine Express Green Grants (part of the Forestry Commission) for improvements to the Oxley Orchard by planting a wildflower & wild fruit tree meadow. This was very successful in 2015 and we managed to obtain funds from the Parish Council to reseed with perenial wild flowers – unfortunately this has not been very successful and we think we may have to start again by clearing the site and reseeding.
