Maldon: Fundraising drive to replace Tolleshunt D'Arcy's old playground
12:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Local News
Villagers have started a fundraising drive to replace ageing playground equipment spoiled by vandals and pigeons.
Tolleshunt D’Arcy Parish Council has been unable to source grants to replace the equipment in the Tollesbury Road park and hope villagers can help them fundraise.
Dad Mark Burmby contacted the council a few weeks ago after his daughter Daisy, two, tripped over safety tiles that had been moved and scuffed her knee.
Parish councillor Gerry Munson said the playground has a current safety certificate and is inspected every year.
The council is organising a quiz at the village hall on September 7 at 8pm to start raising money to replace equipment.
Anyone who wants to help fundraise can call Mr Munson on 01621 860553 or Andrew Christy on 01621 788432.
