EXCITING HAPPENINGS AT THE MILLENNIUM GREEN!
The Draycott Millennium Green Trust has been working with the Parish Council on an exciting project to improve facilities for older children and teenagers at the Millennium Green.
Funds of over £30,000 have been secured and we have almost got enough money to go ahead in September.
Thanks to the grants and the offer of ‘free’ equipment from a Parish Council in South Derbyshire the Trust aims to be able to provide a low level cycle track and add more items of equipment in the play area.
Both the Trust and Parish Council are determined to deliver this equipment for the village and so, when deciding whether to spend over £500 on having 2 visits from the Erewash Borough Council mobile play equipment over the school summer holidays, decided it would be better to use this money towards the permanent equipment.
If you would like to know more about the project please contact one of the Parish Councillors. Their contact details are on the Parish Council web-site Councillors page.
Risley Educational Foundation – FOR ALL STUDENTS ON A UNIVERSITY COURSE WOULD A GRANT BE OF USE TO YOU?
