The Parish Council has awarded the contract for phases 2 and 3 of works to Reawla Park. This covers the refurbishment of the toddler area and the mid age area. Cormac has been chosen to undertake the works and they will spend the next few weeks organising the project and ordering the play equipment. Cormac has suggested they will start on site in May with works completed by August but we will keep you updated on this. The phasing plan below gives an idea of how we hope the project will progress:-
Great news! we have received a grant from SITA for £35,000 which when added to the grant the GVA has been given in principle from GGSCF and parish council funds, we have just over £80,000 to spend at the park! these funds will go towards creating the vision you had for areas A (toddler area) & D (existing play area) on the plan below:-
Works on Areas A & D should take place from April 2018 through to Sept 2018.
The Gwinear Villages Associations (GVA) has applied to GGSCF for a grant towards the park and I am pleased to say the grant was successful, this grant will help refurbish the toddler and mid age range areas.
The PC has had some success already with grant funding with £7210 being donated from Cornwall Council’s Devolution Fund towards a skate park project.
Update August 2016
The Parish Council (PC) was successful in getting the park devolved to parish level from Cornwall Council in August 2016.
Two fun days have been held with the community, one in 2012 when the project to devolve the park started and one in 2017 once the park was devolved. The fun days helped produce a master plan which the PC wants to make a reality.
The PC then set up a Working Group (WG) with representatives invited from local groups and organisations who can help with project. The WG consists of PC reps, Gwinear Villages Association rep, Pen Tye Residents Association rep and help when needed from the Community Pride Operative, Cornwall Council rep & Penwith Community Development Trust rep.
