Delays to revamp for Cowling playground
11:00am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
Complications have delayed plans to refurbish a recreation ground.
Parish clerk Andrew Mallinson said Cowling Parish Council wanted to buy equipment for Cowling Recreation Ground, in Main Street, which would cost up to £300,000 with funding from grants by Sport England or the Big Lottery Fund.
“But there are more and more groups vying for those pots of money these days,” said Mr Mallinson. Another complication is that to qualify for any funding the recreation ground would need to set up a new management committee.
