Playing field : Fund-raising raffle and update

The Friends of Holcot Playing Field would like to thank everyone who supported the recent fundraising raffle.

Huge thanks to everyone who was kind enough to donate prizes, and to those who purchased tickets. Thank you also to Hayley and Martin at the White Swan, for letting us draw the raffle there.

£679 was raised, which will be put towards new equipment for the playing field. Thank you so much for your support.

On top of this, our County Councillor Judy Shepherd has been able to donate £431. Thanks Judy! A great start on both accounts.

The group are in the process of setting up a bank account, and will be planning how to raise further funds (hopefully from grants) over the coming months. If anyone has any good ideas, or sources of funding 🙂 , please contact the group via Lisa or Jackie ( is the easiest email address to reach them).

The Friends are investigating the best way of achieving a lasting difference in our playing field, with installation probably on a phased basis aligned to their success in attracting funding. Again, please get involved if you can.

Thanks everyone.
