Sibsey to get £32k play equipment

SIBSEY Community Park is set to be given a £32,000 makeover...as three new pieces of play equipment will be brought to the village.

The park – based next to the village hall on Frithville Road – wil have new play equipment installed, thanks to a cash boost.

A trailblazer assault course, incorporating ropes, ladders and more fun activities, will be made available for village youngsters to use.

Also set for the park will be a Devil’s Island Swing, which is a large basket seat which can hold several young people at one time.

Completing the new play equipment, will be a Cone Climber roundabout.

This is a roundabout with a circular base but a climbing net attached which allows youngsters to climb as they spin.

The equipment is suitable for youngsters aged three to 12.

The total £32,706 funding will come from several contrubutors.

The highest stake – £15,520 – will be handed over by the Lincolnshire County Council Communities Facilities Grant.

Other cash wil come from East Lindsey District Council (£7,500), Sibsey Parish Council (£3,000) and local fundraising initiatives (£1,962).

A further £4,724 is expected to come from WREN, although this is yet to be confirmed.

The ELDC cash comes from the authority’s Community Grant Scheme.

This will also see £4,390 donated to East Kirkby Village Hall.

The money will go towards resurfacing the hall’s car park.
