Berrow villagers celebrate £15,000 boost for play area project

Delighted residents in Berrow are celebrating again this week after securing £15,000 of funding from environmental firm Viridor towards the village's new play area project.

The parish council announced on Wednesday (February 24th) that Viridor is to provide the funding through its Landfill Communities Fund.

The news comes after a £50,000 lottery windfall last November when the project was selected in The People’s Millions, a TV competition run by The Big Lottery Fund and ITV.

Berrow Parish Council clerk Lynn Smith told on Wednesday: "This is wonderful news and will enable us to finalise and undertake the project over the course of the next few months."

"A planning application has recently been submitted to Sedgemoor District Council with regard to the Buccaneer Tower."

"Planning approval is required for this, as the Buccaneer Tower is a large climbing frame reaching some 18 feet high! We are all really excited about the project and hope that it will be completed in time for the summer holidays."

Berrow Parish Council intends to display the plans for the play area soon and notices will be put up around the village advising where and when this will happen.
