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 activity. Click

We need to get as many surveys completed as possible.
