NNDC’s Big Society Fund Panel recognised Ingworth Parish Council’s strong desire to improve the play facilities for the local community and in support of the work it had already undertaken to secure funding for the project, was happy to make an award. Ingworth Parish Council has also secured funding from Awards for All England.
Cabinet Member, Cllr. Sue Arnold, at a recent event to unveil the equipment, said: “Ingworth Parish Council has demonstrated a strong will to support its local community so I am delighted that North Norfolk District Council’s Big Society Fund has been able to play a part in improving such an important facility.
“Play parks are a great place for local children to enjoy and a valuable community meeting point for parents and carers. I would like to particularly like to thank Ann Marie, Gill, other members of the Parish Council and all those involved in this project. Their hard work, commitment and dedication to improve play facilities are commended. I’m sure the new play equipment will be popular and well used.”
North Norfolk District Council set up the Big Society Fund in 2012 to help support, benefit and strengthen communities across North Norfolk. In the last three years the Fund has awarded grants in excess of £1 million for over 120 community projects that are meeting local need and make a real difference to communities in North Norfolk.
