Funding approved for Bouth Playground

Jun 25, 2021

Bouth Village Green

Local children are set to benefit from an upgrade to the Village Green Playground thanks to grants of £6400 from FCC Communities Foundation and £1500 from The Hadfield Trust.

The money will be used to replace the degraded safety surfaces around the swings, slide, Burma Bridge and trim trail equipment.

The two grants are a real boost to the villagers of Bouth who look after the village green and playground. The work, which is due to commence in the next few weeks, will guarantee the longevity of the playground and make a huge difference to the many locals and visitors who enjoy the facility.

FCC Communities Foundation is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects through the Landfill Communities Fund.

The Hadfield Trust gives grants to organisations located in Cumbria to support community projects.
