Play 4 Life Play 4 All is an East Leake Parish Council led community based project aimed at refurbishing the Gotham Road recreation ground. This is the main play facility situated at the heart of our village but the current play area is too small for our expanding village, the equipment is old and not challenging for older children, equipment suitable for disabled children is limited, and there is little seating and sheltered areas. The current playground is the original installation and has NEVER been refurbished. This competition gives us the opportunity to change this play facility for our young people, providing them with a safe, challenging and exciting new play area, whilst providing an focal point within the village to bring our community, and those from surrounding villages, together.

We know that this project is important to our residents because results from the recent (2012) community plan questionnaire revealed that 70% of those that responded felt that the play facilities at the centre of the village are in need of improvement. In conjunction with parents, we have organised public drop-in events, held sessions with children within our schools, and visited uniformed groups and through this we have drawn up a ‘wish-list’ of equipment and facilities people would like to see included. We have already given this information to playground equipment suppliers who have come back to us with designs for the new playground and again, we’ve been out into the community and have feedback on these plans. Importantly, already included in the designs is play equipment suitable for ALL AGES and ABILITIES as well as facilities for parents and carers.

If we win, we will be able to realise this project and start the installation of the new playground. This would make a tremendous difference to our community but we can only do this if we have your vote. Please, please pick up the phone and vote for this project – our children and community would really benefit from this exciting new project.

This play area would be well-used and appreciated by the children, their parents and grandparents. East Leake is a centre for many surrounding villages.
