Trim Trail funding for Mountsfield Park

We had fantastic news yesterday from our friends at Glendale who have secured a £15,000 grant from the London Marathon Charitable Trust. Combined with the £2,000 awarded to FOMP by Rushey Green Assembly, we now have £17,000 to pay for new trim trail equipment at Mountsfield Park which will be available for adult and young adult park users. We’re really pleased that both funds have chosen to invest in our park, and also grateful to Glendale for supporting these applications.

The next step is to consult with park users about the sort of equipment they would like to see in the park, so we’ll be circulating a survey really soon.  Your views and ideas are essential and will help us to make sure the the trail is popular and well used.

Watch this space!

Mountsfield Park play area has been closed for 6 months (approx). The new sand play area hasn’t been included during current drainage works, which will mean that it will be soggy during wetter months. Will the drainage swale be retained within the the play area?
