Meriden adventure playground handed £2k boost

Solihull Editorial 12th Oct, 2018   0

A MERIDEN adventure playground has been handed £2,000 to help create more opportunities for youngsters in the borough.

The Meriden Park-based playground has been handed the donation by Birmingham-based charity LoveBrum.

The new funding from LoveBrum is said to help the charity develop more opportunities for teenagers including repairing the climbing wall.

Paul Mitchell, executive director of LoveBrum, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Meriden Adventure Playground Association with their ongoing development.

“Not only is it a great area for children to play, it also provides support and a food bank for local families.

“Our members were captured by the work of the team and voted them as winners of our latest monthly vote.”

Meriden Adventure Playground Association first began in December 2012 to support and develop the Lottery-funded playground. The association was granted charity status at the beginning of last year.

The playground is free of charge and welcomes anyone to enjoy the outdoor play area.

There are purpose-built wooden climbing structures, a sandpit, fire pit, zip wire, swings, a tunnel and open space for visitors to use.
