New playgrounds at Coulson Park and KGV now open!

Monday 12th October 2015

This is what made it all worth it... This Friday afternoon when the brand new KGV playground was full of the children of Lostwithiel, children of all ages from many different schools, laughing, playing, climbing, swinging, spinning, older children helping younger children, adults chatting, everyone enjoying our SECOND, NEW, FABULOUS PLAYGROUND.

It made all those years of planning, hoping, organising, fundraising, writing applications, attending meetings, painting faces, selling popcorn, serving pimms and more endless fundraising totally worthwhile!

We have so many people to thank, which we will do properly once we have been down the zip wire a few more times! But we are immensely grateful to BIFFA Award for their grant, to all our other grant providers, to all the local businesses who have supported us and to all the people of Lostwithiel who have unfalteringly continued to support us. This is for you...

We are utterly delighted and thrilled to be able to play on the new KGV playground. We have so many people to thank, without these people, there would not be hundreds of happy Lostwithielian children playing and having fun on their wonderful new KGV playground. 

So thank you:
