Vote 1 – Play at Packsaddle & Tower View

We’ve set aside £7,500 for the play areas at Packsaddle and Tower View – so a total of £15,000.

At each site, the vote will be a straightforward one – you’ll be able to choose one of three options:

  • Option 1: we spend £7,500 on new play equipment
  • Option 2: we spend £5,000 on new play equipment and £2,500 on play workers
  • Option 3: we spend £2,500 on new play equipment and £5,000 on play workers

 

We’re currently working on plans for both sites that will explain and illustrate each option in more detail. You can get involved now and shape these plans by filling in one or both of our Play questionnaires:

play-questionnaire-tower-view

play-questionnaire-packsaddle

And in case it helps, you can find an example completed questionnaire here: play-questionnaire-example

After looking at all the questionnaires that come back, the plans for both play areas will be ready in January – giving you plenty of time to think about them before you vote in March!

The plans will be available to view on this page of the website; or by calling in to our office.
