Community volunteers secured £50,000 towards the overhaul of Ravenglass village play area following a successful bid to the Big Lottery Funds Community Spaces Programme with the support of Community Development Worker Rachel Graham.
The winning bid sees the completion of the funding package needed to revamp the existing play area that has become tired and rundown over the last few years.
The project took over two years to come together since it was identified the Parish plan. The project team have talked to lots of parents and children in the village about the project and are so excited to see all the hard work come together.
Leo Saldanha, Muncaster Parish Councillor and project lead said, “We were delighted to have secured the final amount of funding for the project. We have worked very hard towards this point and have accessed support and guidance from the Copeland Community Funds’ Development worker in the final stages to help see it through.”
