Let Children Play at Boldmere Gate - give them a play area!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The children of Boldmere have no where to play within walking distance of the high street (for little legs) and we want Sutton Coldfield Town Council to deliver their promise to provide a facility for them at Boldmere Gate. This would not only make local children very happy, but would be a facility enjoyed by the whole of Sutton Coldfield! 

We want to help deliver this, but we need your support, we want to engage with you about the type of play area, and we want it to be inclusive for all children to enjoy! 

Only 2% of the Play and Recreation budget was spent in 2016/17
Of the £150,000 budgeted in 2016/17 for Play and Recreation £100,000 was for ‘Play equipment in open spaces’ and £50,000 for park enhancements — only £2,500 was spent.

More money was spent in 2017/18 but the majority of funds remained unused. This time only a third of the Play and Recreation budget – now increased to £347,000 – was spent.

Please deliver on your promise and give local children a facility that will enrich their lives, and give parents and grandparents somewhere locally to play! 

You have the money, and you have the power to deliver something that the community wants! 

Please don't delay, give our children somewhere to play!
