It's been an exciting 6 months for the FoMP team; the transformation of Underhill's playground is nearly complete and it is looking fantastic! We can't wait to see the fences come down and children enjoying a playground they deserve.
Grants and donations from the Aviva Community Fund, Mumbles Community Council and Mumbles Old People's Welfare Association have made it all possible. Dawsons Estate Agents have generously provided a picnic table for the play area and we have had 2 kind offers to sponsor a bench. It is amazing how much support there is for this project.
All we need now is a bin.....not glamorous, not exciting, but necessary and expensive! We would be so grateful for any donations towards this vital item. We would love to raise enough for a recycled plastic triple bin that would enable recycling but these are just over £1,000 (plus VAT). We don't need to tell you how important it is to recycle wherever possible so the playground should be no different, you could say it's even more crucial to set a green example to the youngsters in the playground. Please help us raise the funds needed.
Rest assured, if we are lucky enough to exceed the target amount we have plenty of ideas to further enhance the playground, such as planters. And if we smash the target all together it could kick start the next project for a Mumbles park in need....
