Rastrick Plays Better improving play areas VYC 2015 – 1st place
In 2015 Rastrick Plays Better was chosen in 1st place and awarded £40,000 to improve parks and play areas. They have also attracted substantial funding of £180,000 from other sources.
The Oaklands play area has now been improved and a cycle track and zip wire are in-situ at Carr Green recreation ground proving very popular with our younger generation.
Funding is now in place to refurbish Thornton Road and to replace goalposts at Healey Wood Road. Rastrick Plays Better are still seeking further funding to complete the Burnsall Road play area and at the end of December 2017 put a bid in to the Tesco’s Bags For Life funding scheme and, having been chosen as the most popular project, were awarded £4,000 to continue to improve Burnsall Road.
