Minster FM spoke to Richard Denton, who heads the committee which is replacing equipment at Churchfield play area:
Richard Denton said:
"Our play area here in Wigginton dates back to 1991. The play equipment needed replacing.In late 2013 my committee made the decision to replace it with a ambitious scheme costing £67,000."
"After much research and consultation with our local community and many interested groups we decided that we needed to make our playground disabled friendly and easy to access for people with mobility problems. We also wanted to provide lots of seating for families. We have been successful in raising sufficient funds to go ahead with phase 1 of our project costing £39,000 we are now hoping to raise the balance in order to complete our PLAY FOR ALL project."
"Money has been raised locally with a collection tin in our village store.fruit & veg sales and recently a successful book sale was held in Wigginton Old School. Grants have been obtained from 17 grant providers including Yorwaste, Awards for All and recently The Co-op community fund, we also came first in the York vote for the Lloyds Bank Community fund gaining us £3000. At present people can put a token in a local good cause of their choice at ASDA Huntington, Churchfield is one of the choices."
