Today the Friends of Grangewood Park received its first RHS ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ Award. We achieved Level 2 ‘Improving’ status which is pretty good given it is our first year in the scheme. Well done to everyone who has been involved with the Friends – the hard work and enthusiasm is paying off. You will see the certificate on our park noticeboard soon.
We need your help to develop our plans for the playground. Please can you tell us
1) What you like about the current playground
2) What you don’t like about the current playground
3) what you would like to see in a new playground (please give us examples of your favourite playgrounds and what you like about them)
