Funding Boost for St Mawes Recreation Ground

stmawes-playground-mosaicSt Mawes Recreation Ground committee has received a £25,000 funding boost from SITA Cornwall Trust to replace some 30 year old play equipment including children’s swings and a zip wire.

Additionally the funding will allow the replacement of an existing footpath with one suitable for disabled access, together with a community art project which will deliver mosaics which will be incorporated into the new footpath.

Charles Pridmore, Chairman of the committee told Roseland Online, “At a time when funding is very difficult to come by, this grant is a great boost to the activities in the Recreation Ground, which is used by many people of all ages, both locals and visitors alike.”

The mosaic in the Mediterranean Biome at the Eden Project was the inspiration for this idea. Mosaicist, Joanna Dewfall, will be working with different representative groups from the local community and so anyone who is interested in participating should contact organiser, Dina Croft on 01326 270256.

The SITA Cornwall Trust funding will enable the St Mawes Recreation Ground play equipment to be brought up to the required Health and Safety standards and will enable improved access to this delightful valley, where the amenities include a skate ramp, children’s play area, tennis court and playgroup building together with extensive woodland and open spaces.

The committee has also been actively raising funds through other activities including the sale of jute bags sponsored by local businesses and a wine and cheese evening.
