Welwyn mums bid to spruce up playgrounds
MUMS in Welwyn have clubbed together in a bid to raise money to refurbish the village’s two public playgrounds.
The group, which has been christened the Welwyn Playground Support Group (WPSG), plans to raise the necessary cash through a combination of grant applications, community support and fundraising events.
Gill May, the group’s communications officer, said that revamping the village’s playing facilities would help to “improve the quality of life for children in the community”.
She said: “Much of the existing equipment and surfaces are outdated, in a state of disrepair, or in some cases unsafe. “Furthermore, some provision needs to be made for the wider community, in particular for disabled children.”
The group will be holding a consultation event later this month in order to engage with residents.
