Play Area Update


Based on the results of our survey, we now have estimated costs for new equipment for the play area to replace the items that had to be removed for safety.

Unfortunately the Council cannot help financially at the moment, so we need to raise around £70,000. We are applying for grant funding, but for some funders we need to show we already have 10% of the project cost before we can apply. We are therefore URGENTLY looking to raise this 10% through grants and donations. We've set up a Just Giving page with a target of £2,000 to help us meet our target and are asking people to donate what they can.

We know times are tough and it's a lot of money, but every penny you can give will be spent on Portswood Rec and every donation will be greatly appreciated. 

You can donate to our Just Giving page by following this link 

Please help if you can.
