Together We CAN make a difference.
Groundwork Lancashire West and Wigan are working
with Friends of Amberswood and Wigan Council on a proposed natural
play area for 0-10 year olds near the Crompton Street entrance
to Amberswood Common and want to gauge the need for this facility
in order to get funding.
The emphasis is on creating a safe yet exciting low maintenance
environment using grassy mounds and wooden and stone play structures,
natural grasses and low scramble nets, for under 10s. Structures
are designed to improve children's balance, co-ordination and
fitness level. In addition we have incorporated structures that
encourage wildlife, so strengthening the children's relationship
with nature. The naturalistic spaces will act as a springboard
for children's engagement with the surrounding woodland and
the natural environment and encourage them to take part in creative
to view Plan
The play area would also offer seating and an opportunity for
people to socialise in a beautiful environment.
I have created a short questionnaire at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VSLVRBB
We need to get as many surveys completed as possible.
Is it possible that you could advertise this as widely as possible
and ask people to fill out the questionnaire. Attached is a
flyer for more information.
