£50k by May….. just £5k to go!

With help from our major sponsors and local community, we have almost hit our fundraising campaign target.

Help us to reach our final goal of £50k before the end of the month.

The past few months have shown us the value of Conway Park in maintaining our physical and mental wellbeing. With your help we can make what is a great local ‘green space’ even better!

Already, we have completed the First Phase of improvements to the children’s play area. This included drainage, new surfacing & new improved equipment for older children, at a cost of £45,000.

The Second Phase will provide better and more accessible equipment for younger children, for which we need to raise £25,000.

We also want to introduce a new footpath, from the play area to the pavilion and then running along the west side of the park (parallel with the railway) to join up with the existing woodland path (the Belton Hill to Walker Lane path). This will benefit everyone using the park – children, walkers, dog-walkers, Cadley FC’s spectators etc – by providing an ‘all-weather’ surface by which to get from one end of the park to the other. The anticipated cost of this new section of footpath is £25,000.
