Sponsorship and funds required for Guernsey children to benefit from new Saumarez Park playground

September 15th, 2012 by Friends of Saumarez Park Playground

The Friends of Saumarez Park Playground‘ charity raises funds to create a new children’s playground in Saumarez Park, Castel, Guernsey.

Plans for the new playground were unveiled in January 2012.  The charity needs to raise £500,000 to create the playground.

So far over £60,000 has been donated or pledged to the playground replacement fund. If sufficient funds can be raised, construction of the new playground will begin in 2013.

The States of Guernsey has the responsibility for the maintenance of the playground, but the capital funding of playground equipment has always come from private sources.

The last playground was privately funded in 1993 through the generosity of a local trust, which provided a sum in the order of £300,000. Previous to this, the playground was funded through the efforts of the Lions Club and the support of local companies.
