We're a group of parents passionate about bringing children from across the Parish of Luppitt together in our rural community. Rural life is amazing in so many ways but it can bring isolation and lack of social opportunities for children and teenagers, and their parents/carers. Especially when you live in a parish that covers such a large geographical area. Covid 19 lockdowns highlighted this, long days alone with children and no communal outdoor space to meet. We have identified a need to help rectify this situation through a centrally located parish playground. We hope that this outdoor space will appeal to children, teenagers, parents, carers and grandparents and bring a infrequently used space to life.
With the support of the Parish Council and Village Hall Committee in place we hope to rectify this in an accessible location with great facilities.
Location, Location, Location... they say...
Luckily we have a perfect one, a playing field at our Village hub the Village Hall. Look at the picture below and we think you'll agree it's crying out for some playground equipment.
We and especially the children and teenagers of the village are excited about transforming this idea to a reality.
As you will probably know playground equipment is expensive and whilst we plan to do as much of the work ourselves (fence building, groundworks and installation where possible) we'll still need a considerable budget. We hope this crowdfunder campaign combined with success in national grant applications will raise a pot of money sufficient for infant swings, a large basket style swing and climbing frame with slide, monkey bars and climbing wall (children have told us this is what they'd like).
We hope this is a project you feel able to support as we know it will quickly become a well used and much loved facility.
