The village hall committee at Lakesend is appealing for help to replace the children’s only play area.
The current playground next to the village hall is in very poor shape and due to be demolished as it is now unsafe, with rusting metal and flaking paint – the slide is pictured.
However, there are no funds currently available to replace the equipment, leaving the children of the village nothing to play on.
Amanda De’ath, committee treasurer, said the village hall committee will be discussing ways to raise money to put new equipment in but she would also like to hear from local residents who want to get on board and help, whether through donations or organising fundraisers.
Anyone who can help or wants to get involved, contact the Citizen newsdesk on 01945-586138 and your details will be passed on.
