Fact File

Project/Applicant Name:Belbroughton Play Area
County:West Midlands
Grant Received:£32,500

The Belbroughton Recreation Centre was donated to the village in 1920 as a recreation facility to commemorate the end of the First World War. The grounds have been developed over the years to incorporate a sports hall, tennis club, meeting centre, playing fields and children’s playground.

Unfortunately, by 2019 most of equipment in the playground was damaged and had to be removed leaving just a few uninspiring items suitable for pre-school children and a wooden obstacle course which was in a poor state of repair. Due to the rural location of the village, there was no alternative playground for children to use.

The applicant was awarded £32,500 by Biffa Award to create a new exciting play area with equipment suitable for children up to 12 years old, including swings, a slide, climbing frames and obstacles.
