03.09.18 Breaking ground at Swalcliffe’s new Woodland Play Area
Hip hip hip hooray! After nearly four years of planning, work starts tomorrow September 4th on the construction of the Community Woodland Play Area at Swalcliffe Park School. We hit our target for fundraising for all the development work – thanks to some very generous grants from Cherwell District Council, the Big Lottery Awards for All fund, Trust for Oxfordshire’s Environment, Banbury Charities, Swalcliffe Parish and Parochial Church Councils and the Village Fund – to name just a few. Full details will be announced in The Link shortly.
Watch this space for the official opening day, but it is expected that the landscaping and construction work will take about 10 weeks. There are still opportunities to sponsor some of the finishing touches such as bird and bat boxes or a wooden bench. We want to make it into a genuine learning resource about woodland diversity as well as a much needed place for village children to meet and have fun in the Wild Wood!
