You may have noticed that the fences inside the playground have now been removed and the gaps in the surfacing have been filled professionally. This should keep the playground safer and pleasanter for some time to come. Many thanks to our Councillor Jason Standerwick for his help with this!

The Parish Council are very grateful for two sources of funding for this work.

County Councillor Alan White has made a grant of £1,000 towards the renovation work from his Local Member's Fund and we'd like to say a big Thank You for this.

We have also received a donation of £1,219 from the profits of the weekly coffee shop held at the Village Hall, THANK YOU to Irene Standerwick who has started this welcome initiative to help villagers to get to know each other, and has kindly donated funds for the playground. This means that the Parish Council are able to retain some of the funds previously donated by the playground volunteers to earmark towards future new equipment when the older items wear out and need replacing.

A working party to clean the play area will take place later in the Spring, all are welcome to come along to help!

We still need volunteers to help with the weekly inspections so that we keep the insurers happy.  More people are needed for our rota, so please contact Margaret on clerk@elfordpc.co.uk if you can help with this for a few minutes about four times a year,
