Bowling Green Play Area
The new playground is now ready for use and open. An official launch was held on Saturday 6th June to which all sponsors were invited. Funding of £67,000 for the playground was obtained by the Council from two landfill tax distribution organisations, Yorventure and WREN. Yorventure awarded the council £25,000 through funds generated by Yorwaste Ltd. WREN awarded £42,000. This is in addition to £950 already contributed by local businesses and over £380 raised by the Steeton parent and toddler group. The council contributed £5,800 of its own resources to the project.
