Fundraising for Playground Safety Surfacing

Fundraisinging for Playground Safety Surfacing.

The Parish Council and the Etchingham Recreation Ground (Queen’s Garden) Trust are working to replace the play equipment that has had to be taken out of use in Queen’s Garden.

Due to the dreaded Covid-19 an event that was to be organised to raise money for the new play equipment in the Queens Garden’s had to be shelved for the moment. So we thought now would be a good time to do phase 2, which is sponsorship for the new safety surfacing that we need. It is called TigerMulch (Bonded rubber mulch) made from recycled truck tyres.
We need 130m2 at a cost of £7330.00. We vare looking for sponsorship of 1 sq mtr of £25 which is just over half the cost per sq mtr.
Please try and donate, obviously the more people the better, the playground really needs a much needed overhaul/upgrade for the many younger residents of Etchingham.

Queen’s Garden Playground


In response to new Government guidelines we are changing the notices on Queen’s Garden to say that the open area is available for your enjoyment but the playground area is most definitely not. We cannot fence it off. We cannot take adequate safety measures to disinfect the equipment.
The Covid-19 virus is believed to remain viable on metal for up to 72-hours so this measure is for the safety of you and your children not for anyone’s convenience.
We know that these are challenging times for everyone and I can only guess at how difficult is must be to find ways for children to let off steam but please respect the guidelines and stay safe.
The new notices will go up as soon as possible.
The Viper play area remains closed for the time being.
