Burton Community Association volunteers have now laid 28 tonnes of topsoil and 310m2 of turf on the play area. This is so that the area can be used by the community while the Association is raising the funds to complete the project. The topsoil and turf were partly funded by generous contributions from the suppliers, Bristol and Avon Group and Gloucestershire Turf. The ‘Buy a Sod for Burton’ appeal has raised over £300, with the balance from Association reserves.
The Association have now chosen the supplier and equipment for the play area, and expect to consult yourselves and the residents about the planned equipment and layout and submit the planning application in July. Once the plan is approved, fundraising will start in earnest.
