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 activity.

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.
