Goudhurst Play Park – Fundraising appeal

Goudhurst Village Play Area (on Back Lane adjacent to the Church Rooms) is in desperate need of renovation. The play area was used by a large section of the community, from toddlers to teenagers. Unfortunately, much of the equipment was condemned and subsequently removed. The community of Goudhurst & Kilndown, supported by Goudhurst Parish Council, is embarking on a fundraising mission to enable an upgrade of the play area with brand new equipment.

The children and parents of the village were invited to vote on the design. A scheme costing £34,000 was chosen from Wicksteed, a company who has manufactured outdoor play equipment since 1918.

Proposed design of the new play area

Goudhurst Parish Council has budgeted £14,000 towards the project. The remaining £20,000 needs to be raised.

The appeal is seeking a main sponsor, with a donation in excess of £5,000. In return, a sponsor’s name or company name and logo will headline the permanent sponsorship board, to be situated in the play area. There is further opportunity for sponsorship, with suggested donations of between £1,000 and £5,000, (sponsors’ names to be included on the board). If you would like to sponsor the play area please contact Jayne Russell at jayne.russell@goudhurst.co.uk or call 07766 5537
