Funding Approved - Charndon Community Centre Inclusive Outdoor Exercise & Sports Facilities

12th March 2020

Charndon Parish Council is overjoyed to announce that funding has now been approved for the new ‘Charndon Community Centre Inclusive Outdoor Exercise & Sports Facility. When complete, this new amenity will provide a 330m walking, running and cycling track around the perimeter of the Charndon Community Centre playing field. The track will be further enhanced by a number of ‘bays’ that will further provide outdoor exercise equipment - for all ages and all abilities.

Thanks to a £51,919.00 grant from FCC Communities Foundation your Parish Council will now start to plan the delivery of this facility. We now hope to complete the works by the end of Q2 2020. The grant money from FCC will be used to provide the track and exercise equipment bases and the Parish Council will provide the funds for the outdoor exercise equipment.

Clerk to Charndon Parish Council and all Members, believe this facility will make a huge difference to the lives of people living in the area. It will enhance the amenities already available at the Community Centre and will provide a lasting legacy for future generations. It will be unique in the area and will reduce travel to local towns to find a similar facility. It will provide a free and safe off-road alternative that can be used by all ages, is inclusive and DDA compliant. It’s fantastic that FCC Communities Foundation has awarded us this money and we’re now really looking forward to working with FCC to deliver this amenity during the rest of 2020.

FCC Communities Foundation is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects through the Landfill Communities Fund.  FCC COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION’s, Richard Smith says. “We’re delighted to be supporting the Charndon Sports and Exercise project and pleased our funding will provide such a fantastic facility for the community. We are always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and we’re really looking forward to seeing this one take shape soon.”

Below is a high-level plan of this exciting new facility we will be providing.

 Work will commence on Monday the 30th March 2020 to extend the current footprint of the children’s play area at the Charndon Community Centre to incorporate a new and inclusive basket swing. It is estimated that the works will take no longer that one week. The installation contractors are Reid Playgrounds.

 The play area will remain open and the contractor will protect the working area with the necessary safety fencing.   

 Please note that the contractor will at some point also be repairing a small area of ‘wet pour’ safety surface within the current playground but will do this when the facility is not in use.
