Revitalising our playground: an appeal

We are very please to say that our funding target has been reached with generous donations and with a National Lottery Grant.  Work on the new playground equipment will start in March 2019

We have now selected Wicksteed to provide an exciting new play environment for our children. It will include a nest swing, an adventure climbing and swinging 'spinney' for older children, a toddler play tower, two slides (one not shown), and an agility trail.  We're keeping the existing swings, and of course we'll have signage and seating. 

The playground was donated in the 1960s by the Valentine family, who still have a house in Burpham, and it was refurbished in 1997 by the Village Committee.  Now it is the turn of the third generation to carry on this wonderful play space with its views across the valley to Arundel Castle.  We want to create an exciting environment for our children and grandchildren to enjoy the outdoors in the wonderful rural setting of this Ancient Monument.  

We have set up a Facebook site  where we will provide  updates.  Please 'like' our page and share it with friends. 
We have been bowled over by support from people who played here as children and who have fond memories,  even though they no longer live here.
