25/03/19 – Bramcote will benefit from £120,000 worth of park improvements thanks to a £50,000 grant from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund and £70,000 from Broxtowe Borough Council.
The funding has been secured to help improve King George V Park, Bramcote. The funding will include a new outdoor fitness area and a brand new, state of the art play area.
The improvements, at King George V Park will include a new outdoor fitness and brand new, state of the art play area. Local residents were asked last year what type of facilities they would like to see on site and this feedback has helped shape plans which will be displayed on site shortly when they have been finalised.
Strategic Director (Interim), Kevin Powell said “This project will provide a real boost to the community in Bramcote. It’s fantastic that WREN has awarded us this money and we’re really looking forward to our play and fitness areas taking shape. We plan to start work in summer once a detailed design has been completed. It is hoped the new facility will be complete for the school summer break to allow local people to enjoy the facility in the summer sunshine.”
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Cheryl Raynor, WREN’s local grant manager says: “We are delighted to be supporting the Kingswood Methodist Church project and pleased that our funding will help to create a fantastic facility for local people. WREN is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and we’re really looking forward to seeing this one take shape soon.”
