Our latest project

We are currently looking at improvements to

The Forge Dam Playground

In the Autumn of 2022 we completed a consultation of playground users and everyone with an interest in the Forge Dam area, and were pleased to receive nearly 180 suggestions and comments.

The next step is the creation of a management plan so we have much work to do.

Decisions about design, access, the environment, equipment and fundraising target have still to be taken.

We are of course accepting donations via our own secure donation page.
