Steeton toddlers praised for raising funds towards playground
9:00am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
Steeton toddlers have been praised for their efforts to kickstart fundraising for a new village playground.
Parish council chairman David Mullen was delighted to receive the £400 proceeds of a sponsored toddle this month.
He described the youngsters from Steeton Parent and Toddler Group and St Stephen’s Toddler Praise Group as “brilliant”.
The play area, for children aged up to 12, will be built on the same site as Steeton Community Hub and the bowling green.
Coun Mullen said detailed plans have been drawn up after children, including toddler group members, were asked for their ideas. He said the council was now seeking major funders to cover the bulk of the £75,000 cost of the playground.
He added: “The toddlers’ fundraising is really helpful because we have to show greater funders we’ve also got money from third parties.”
