Friends of Hardie Park have been actively fundraising this year to install a new super slide in the park

Installation of play equipment doesn’t come cheap but the support for the project has been great and the idea of a new slide has been welcomed by the community.The following funds have already been realised:

The Crazy Travel Fundraising Challenge and Park to Pier Race  = £5000

Rotary Club Corringham Thameside = £500

The Co-op Local Community Fund =  £3271.09

We then receive some fantastic news!

A grant of £14,000 towards our new embankment slide from Thurrock Council’s Community Environmental Development Fund. Bingo…we are nearly there! The wheels are now in motion and we hope to have the equipment installed by the end of March 2019. Exciting times!
