We have been successful in gaining £10000 funding from the Big Lottery fund!

WREN funding application has been submitted this month.  Unfortunately, Nottinghamshire County Council Local Improvement Scheme, which was massively oversubscribed, did not support our bid.

Funding bids submitted from the National Lottery Awards for All and Nottinghamshire County Council Local Improvement Scheme.

I’ve been discussing opportunities to upgrade the play facilities in Besthorpe with the parish meeting and have obtained quotes from some local companies.  I’d love to hear your opinions on the design below.  I looked into the feasibility of a zip wire which had been something the kids wanted but the maintenance costs were too much.   Email me at with any comments or if you’d like to help fill out some funding bids.
