Our sign has finally gone up! It’s taken us a long time to get this sorted, but we wanted to get it right.
We’ve had to liaise with all our major benefactors to arrange for logos, then work with our sign designer – Andy at South Park – to design the layout. Our eagle-eyed treasurer, Danielle, then checked for spelling errors etc. All whilst we have each, metaphorically speaking, moved on to jobs/other projects.
It may have taken longer than we wished, but we are very pleased with the end product, and it adds another finishing touch to the playground.
We’re not done yet, however. Fundraising continues, albeit in a low key way. The Living Kitchen are once more holding one of their vegan brunches next weekend, with a percentage of ticket sales going to the playground (for tickets see here). The Co-Operative have also nominated us as one of their local charities. By March we should have enough funds for another improving touch, be it added safety flooring, new fencing, or another piece of equipment. We’re due a board meeting in March, so will be making a decision then.
Meanwhile, the council have also been playing their part, with sections of the old, rotting fence replaced, and new gates. It’s great to see that the improvements our fundraising have made have also led to renewed investment by the council.
SIgning off for now, until the next time!
