Our funding appeal last year received fantastic support from families and individuals within our community but there are also some local organisations we would like to thank.
Both Abernethy Tennis Club and Abernethy Burns Club have made generous donations to the parks project for which we are very grateful.
The organisers of the former Abernethy Youth Club were looking for a worthy home for the funds remaining in a dormant bank account and have kindly donated them to the parks – a big thank you to them!
Finally, in addition to their donation of £5000 towards play equipment in Powrie Park, Branston have given us a further £5000! This is fantastic news and means the much requested zip-slide can now be added to the park! This was the most requested piece of play equipment among primary school children but we were struggling to cover all the costs of purchase, installation and future maintenance. We are hugely grateful for Branston’s generous support which will help to make it possible.
By the time you read this, much of the phase 2 work in Powrie Park should be complete. Isn’t it great to see real results coming from such a huge community effort?
