Groundwork UK have just announced that they will treble the £5000 we raised this summer for our Treasured Spaces Appeal where previously they had agreed to match and double the money. So where before we had £15,000 to invest in our refurbishments of the Triangle Garden central meeting space, we now have £20,000.
A combination of lovely weather and the hard work and enthusiasm of our wonderful volunteer team, ensured that a great time was had by all at our annual Open Day and Fun Dog Show on 7th June.
The day kicked off with a relaxed family-friendly cycle ride from 11am-12.00, starting from Ransom’s Rec and led by a trained ride leader from the local Cyclists Touring Club.
Teddies of all shapes and sizes gathered at Ransom's Rec last week in their finest picnic outfits to be given prizes by the Triangle Garden judges at our latest fundraiser.
Also up for judging were an assortment of delicious cakes submitted to our Heritage Bake Off competition - almost all of which were kindly donated as refreshments for the afternoon.
New and old outdoor games were scattered about the Rec for families to enjoy including welly-wanging, sponge stocks, connect-four, skittles and quoits.
