Work on the new Playpark for the two villages is nearing completion, with the final elements in relation to signage, safety matting, grass seeding and so on currently being undertaken.
A formal opening day event is now planned for the 1st of September, which will include fun and entertainment for all ages and the whole community, including a barbeque, bouncy castle and more.
Given the effort being put in to getting both the park and the launch, Keose Glebe Estate have decided not to run its own ‘community day’ this summer, but will instead assist with, and contribute to, the Community Association event.
A great deal of local volunteer effort has gone in to getting the park up and running, and this will be a fantastic resource for the children in the community.
This effort is much appreciated.

After all the fundraising efforts, now the hard work of putting all the equipment together and getting it installed correctly begins. Much thought has been given to how is should be sited, to ensuring safe use, and just to make it fun to use. Any volunteers willing to help in any capacity would be much appreciated.

The Association has been successful in obtaining funding of over £25K towards the long awaited development of the Keose Playpark.
The Muitheabhal Trust and The Scottish Landfill Fund have been the welcome benefactors here, and this takes us a long way towards the required funding total.
A very useful and enthusiastic meeting was held in the meeting house on the 24th of May were the local residents, and primarily the children, had an opportunity to look at different pieces of play equipment, and to help the committee decide which ones were the most exciting and desirable.
Further fundraising work will now begin, and it is hoped that the community will be generous and help in donating towards this project, especially as It was pointed out that there are now 15 children between the two villages.
This is a remarkable change considering that only a few years ago there were only one or two.
All good positive stuff!
