Castle Camps Playground Group

It’s a little over two years since we formed to raise funds to refit the village playground. In that time, we have secured a grant from AmeyCespa; a grant from South Cambs County Council’s ‘Community Chest’ fund; donations from Castle Camps and Shudy Camps Parish Councils and have raised funds through various events held in the  village.

Together, the money raised has provided two sets of Swings (one for older children and one for toddlers); a ‘Birds Nest’ style Swing; a Triple Tower Multi Activity Unit; a Single Tower Multi Activity Unit; a Toddler Train; Mushroom Table and Stools for smaller children and a Picnic Table.

The equipment was ordered earlier in the year and was due to be installed in July, in time for the school summer holidays.  After various delays and snagging issues, it was finally installed in August, just in time for the children to enjoy it for a short time before returning to school.

The playground is now a great place for the children in our villages and is in regular use.  We have had lots of positive feedback and are pleased to see ours and your children having fun on the new equipment!  We look forward to holding our official opening ceremony in due course and will advise the date for this soon.  We are continuing with fundraising so we can provide other pieces of equipment highlighted in our questionnaire - a Roundabout and then possibly a Zip Wire, we will keep you posted.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a ‘BIG’ thank you for your help and support and hope you will continue to support our fundraising events!
