Andrew Celebrates Play Park Funding

Andrew, visited Hook and Eastoft play areas recently to celebrate funding for new equipment at the two parks. Andrew helped secure the funding via his 'Bid Writing Service' which supports community projects locally.

In Hook, Andrew was joined by Ward Councillor, Nick Coultish, and Parish Council Chair, Jenni Watson, to inspect the new junior play equipment which was funded thanks to a successful grant application to the Goole Fields Wind Farm by the Parish Council. This extends the play equipment ensuring more children in the village benefit.

In Eastoft, children and residents had contacted Andrew and local Councillors asking if the play equipment, which is over 20 years old, could be renewed as many families had stopped using the park. Andrew met with Isle of Axholme North Ward Councillor, Julie Reed, and members of the Eastoft Community Wellbeing Association, to view the new equipment recently.  

Andrew says, "We are proud to have helped both Hook Parish Council and the Eastoft Community Wellbeing Association help secure the funding for these upgrades. It is what local families and children told us they wanted and the new equipment looks great. Well done to both of the groups involved for the work they do looking after our communities."

Goole North and Hook Councillor, Nick Coultish adds, "The new equipment looks really great and we have already had positive feedback from users. Andrew and I gave it a try when we visited, proving just how robust the new equipment is!"
