Press Releases - 26/01/2017
The future's looking bright for Horsley village thanks to a grant from the Gloucestershire Environmental Trust.
The Horsley Play Project has received a grant of Â£26,000 towards the cost of the Horsley Play Project Environmental Improvement Scheme.
The Horsley Play Project will create a new creative play space and social hub for the rural parish of Horsley near Stroud.
The project will be a reinvention and extension of the existing playground with an emphasis on stimulating outdoor learning, creating inventive and inclusive play for all ages, whilst also creating a safe and sociable place to gather for the wider village community.
The project will create a space where people from the parish can do more than simply take their children to the playground. They can also meet friends and sit down in a shady spot for picnics, or at weekends. The village shop is right next door so visitors can buy drinks and snacks and enjoy them at a picnic table.
Allan Caudwell, Chair of Horsley Parish Council said: "Its fantastic to see the start of this project. Children of all ages will love it. It will enhance the other great facilities in Horsley village centre such as the shop, school, 3 in 1 Church, playing field, and village hall."
