You will all have noticed that work has started on the Tattenhall Park and Playground Refurbishment Project.

Ground works are underway to create a new and improved playground and park for the community of Tattenhall, Cheshire.

The refurbishment programme has seen the current play equipment removed, a new drainage system installed, pathway and landscaping improvements undertaken and some fantastic new and exciting pieces of play equipment installed.

The project, estimated to cost approximately £130,000, has been funded by a combination of Parish Council funds, section 106 development monies, local fundraising and generous donations from local businesses.

The project, is also being funded by a £50,000 grant from WREN'S FCC Community Action Fund, which will provide the play equipment and park furniture, once it is open, this summer.

Alison Pritchard, Deputy Chair of Tattenhall and District Parish Council, is excited that the project is starting to take shape. She says: "It's great to see our vision for the improved park and playground area moving closer to reality. We are extremely grateful for the funding WREN has given us and we're looking forward to opening to the public. Watch this space for details of the opening Party"

WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, conservation and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund. Richard Smith, Senior Grant Manager says "It's always nice to see something we have funded start to take shape. We're delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile project and look forward to it being well used by children and young people across Tattenhall".

With the prospect of 'End of Seasons Fines' after the match, combined with the wonderful late summer weather, there was plenty of energy pre- match, particularly when our captain decided we would be drawing straws to decide the batting line up...
