Grand Opening

Please come along on Monday 4th April 3.30pm for the Grand Opening of the new equipment at Tarring Park.  The kids are very excited to be able to play on the new equipment that they helped to chose.  Sharon and the council have worked very hard to get the funding for this exciting new development for Tarring Recreation Park and I'm sure we're all grateful for the hard work and what's been achieved.  Come along on Monday to show your support and enjoy the playground.  Bring a friend!

Just in time for the holidays!!

Park Progress

If you haven't been past the park lately you won't have seen the exciting changes going on there.  The equipment is in the process of being installed and will open soon.  In the meantime here are some photos of the progress and I'm sure we're all looking forward to spending more time at the park once the work is finished especially if the weather holds!

Funding Success!!!!

Have you heard the good news?  Our application to Viridor Credits for the funding for the equipment for the playground has been successful!  We've been awarded £39,000 which means that we can go ahead with the plans and hopefully have the equipement installed ready for a Grand Opening in February 2011.  We have had 849 votes from the kids at both Thomas a Becket First School and Thomas a Becket Middle School so we know the kids opinions and they have been taken into consideration before the final design decision on the equipment.  A good news day!
