Play Area Opened!

Children in Uppingham are celebrating the opening of a new play area at Tod's Piece. The new play area is officially up and running following a launch party attended by the High Sheriff of Rutland, Richard Cole at Tod's Piece on Tuesday.

New all-weather surface and swings, slides and climbing equipment are included in the new play area, which was funded by a £50,000 grant from FCC Communities Foundation.

Steve Rozak, Mayor of Uppingham says "This play area is going to make a real difference to the community in Uppingham. We are extremely grateful to FCC Communities Foundation for providing funding as we it would not have been possible without their support. The new space is for children aged 8 and under and the improved all-weather surface is ready for everything the British summer has instore!"

FCC Communities Foundation is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects though the Landfill Communities Fund.

Cheryl Raynor FCC Community Foundations local grant manager says: it's great to see the play area fully open and being used by local children, the enhancements to the park are fantastic and offer families with young children a great space to play and have fun for many years to come. FCC Communities Foundation is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and this is a great example of what can be achieved."
