Great News! Our playground is now open.
Within an hour of announcing “Our playground is open” on Social media today we had 3 families testing it out. 
Verdict: a resounding thumbs up
What did the parents like: Fenced, shade sail, amazing equipment and a new playground for the district
What did the children like: the taste of gravel and how far you can throw mulch
What do the parents want: a coffee/food van, which we are searching for. If you know anyone we would love to hear from them.

Now we have the toddler playground we need to extend the opportunities for our young visiting audience to explore their surrounding environment in a fully fitted out Education Centre.
Thanks to all those who have donated or pledged to date and for the next financial year. As at 15 June 2020 we have raised about 30% of the cost for the centre.
