Voting is now open for the Alexandra Park Community Group to win £25,000 in the Aviva Community Fund 2016.
The group, which is raising funds to regenerate the play area at Alexandra Recreation Ground in Tolworth, is in competition with numerous other groups in the area to be successful in their bid for funding. They have the aim of creating a vibrant, inclusive and distinctive community playground accessible to families with children of all ages, abilities and requirements.
The group has plans, if successful, to extend the playground with new adventure play equipment, make the playground more disabled-friendly and refurbish the current, tired play equipment and surfaces.
A member of the group said: “It is hoped the Alexandra Park Community Group can finally achieve these long-held plans to turn this popular but ageing playground into a a thriving community space where friends and family can meet regularly, and where child can play, learn and have fun.”
