Our Chairman, Scott Wilding, has been a trustee of the Playground Association for 2 years working with parents and guardians to raise over £100,000 for this great cause.image2

The Wanstead Society donated £1,200 which paid for new pic-nic tables.

It has been a long campaign but its finally open. Scott Said: “My nan used to take me to play at that park when I was little, and now future generations can enjoy this facility. It’s a great bit of news – well done Wanstead for raising all the funds needed”

It is hoped that the play-park will provide free fun for kids for at least 20 years before needing to be replaced again.

PlaygroundThe Wanstead Society has donated over £1,100 to the Wanstead Playground Association since it was formed 2 years ago. Our Chairman, Scott Wilding, is a trustee of the Charity and has worked with the Committee to ensure this great appeal has as much funding as possible.

 

The fund raising activities have been so successful that work is due to start in the next few months. It’s a great achievement for the whole community and one that will see our children use a vital community asset. Overall over £100,000 has been raised for this small corner of Wanstead and 90% of that was from volunteers and donations. It’s a real testament to what can happen when the community pulls together.
