A Britain’s Got Talent star will be opening a new community playground in Ambleside this weekend alongside the PCSO who made it all happen. The Kirkfield Playground Project - sponsored by local businesses and the Big Lottery fund - has now been completed and the new facility is due to be unveiled this weekend, Saturday 28 April, by Britain’s Got Talent Star, Steven Hall.
The project came about after a local PCSO, Laura Jackson, formed an Ambleside community group which has managed to secure around £69,000 of funding for a new community playground.
Now, the natural playground which encourages imaginative play includes a stone castle, natural rock boulders, a small stage area and a spider made by an artist with designs from the children who live on the Kirkfield/Kirkstone estate.The playground has been funded through the Community Spaces grant of the Big Lottery fund.
