Saxilby Play Area Development

Memorial Field Play Area Re-Development 2017/18

The Council is working towards installing new play equipment in 2017/18. The following funding has been secured this year:

  • £9,550 National Lottery, Awards for All
  • £8,000 West Lindsey District Council with support from Community Lincs
  • £6,400 Lincolnshire Co-op Community Champions
  • £2,000 Community fundraising
  • £2,000 Tesco  
  • £1,000 One Stop
  • £253 Waitrose

The project is being led by a Play Area Working Group, which includes residents and councillors. Fundraising events will continue throughout the year.

Based on community consultation, the new play equipment is set to include a zip wire, climbing frame, swings and a springer. The park is currently scheduled to be installed in February 2018 and a provider has now been agreed by the Council.

Future Plans: Wheeled Park, MUGA, and West Croft Drive Play Area

Longer term plans also include a wheeled park (skate/scooter/BMX), multi-use games area (MUGA) and gym equipment, with designs being created and funding options being explored. 

At the West Croft Drive recreation area we are hoping to install items including a climbing wall, slides and picnic benches. These projects will start after the Memorial Field Play Area project is completed.
