Autumn Rains Don’t Stop Play – Great Wilbraham Play Area Is now open!

Phase 2 of the refurbished Play Area at Great Wilbraham was completed at the end of September and is a big hit with the youngsters, come rain or shine.

The equipment now includes a challenging 4 tower play structure for older children, as well as a spinning carousel and a basketball area.

There is now something for all ages to enjoy, including an adult fitness station.

The durable equipment is from leading playground manufacturer, Kompan and it has been carefully designed to create an exciting and stimulating facility.

Funding for the £72,000 project was raised by Wilbrahams’ Memorial Hall Trustees. The project has been generously supported with grants from FCC Communities Foundation; Wadlow Wind Farm Community Fund; National Lottery Awards for All, South Cambridgeshire Community Chest; Great Wilbraham Parish Council; Little Wilbraham Parish Council; Wilbrahams’ Social Club; St Nicholas Church; Weenie Warblers Toddler Group and several private donors.

To put the finishing touches to the project, we will be undertaking some landscaping with volunteer labour. And finally, grants have been applied for to help fund the replacement the perimeter fence – which is in a sorry state. If you can support the new fence fund, please contact Shirley Morley, Hall Secretary on 01223 880723 or
