Pride In Parks Launch Event Held At Brinsley Parish Hall And Recreation Grounds

04/02/2019 - Following a successful bid to Broxtowe Borough Council's Pride in Parks Initiative, Brinsley Parish Council was awarded a substantial £18,000 grant towards improvements of the Brinsley recreational facilities, focusing on the play area and the timber children’s activity trail.

The Mayor and Mayoress help to open the refurbished play area at Brinsley Parish Hall

A new tyre swing, new basket swing and new safety surfacing have been installed and repairs to existing surfaces have been undertaken. In addition, various repairs and improvements to the existing equipment have been carried out.

The park was officially opened by the Mayor & Mayoress of Broxtowe, Councillor Derek Burnett BEM & Mrs. Sonia Burnett, accompanied by the Chair of Brinsley Parish Council, Councillor Mrs. Valerie Wakeling and Councillor John Handley, who serves on Nottinghamshire County, Broxtowe Borough & Brinsley Parish Councils.

Lots of children attended with their parents and carers to join in the celebrations, followed by arts and crafts in the Parish Hall, Pinxton Puppet shows and refreshments for all.

Everyone left happy after having enjoyed a wonderful afternoon, demonstrating Borough & Parish Councils working together to further improve community cohesion. The Parish Council extended sincere appreciation to the Borough Council for the advice, guidance and support received for this worthwhile project.

A further project will be considered for the 2019/20 Pride in Parks allocation and this may include a review of the outdoor gym equipment.
