We are sorry that the small children's playground has had to be closed temporarily. The platforms in the central adventure apparatus have deteriorated markedly in the past few months and have been finished off by a recent episode of vandalism.
Update 8 September: We are currently awaiting the soon-expected result of a playground funding competition that we entered in August, hoping that we might win a contribution towards funding this refurbishment. Whether that happens or not we will find some money from within the Trust to get this project underway within a few weeks.
Update 17 August: Subject to satisfactory funding arrangements, the Trustees intend to replace the entire adventure apparatus as soon as practically possible.
The chairs which had for many years been used for meetings in the Barnes Wallis Hall were looking their age and were cumbersome to stack and move around. In order to assist the purchase of lighter and more easily stackable chairs ('Advanced Urban High-Density Stacking Chairs'), Effingham Parish Council made a Community Fund award to the Trust in June 2017. Under this arrangement the Council and the Trust each contributed half the cost of purchasing 60 chairs and 3 stacking trolleys. The colour of the new chairs is not the vivid blue shown in the supplier's picture above but a restful green.
