A new playpark in Pulton Place, Fulham has officially opened for residents and the local community.
Pulton Place playpark, located off Fulham Road, was closed in 2016 after being found unfit for purpose. We secured over £23,000 in grant funding for a redevelopment of the playpark through the Tesco Bags for Help and Western Riverside Environmental Fund (WREF), to restore for the facilities back into the local community.
On Thursday 9 August, residents, Hammersmith and Fulham Councillor Belinda Donovan and our staff gathered for a grand opening ceremony. Hermal - pictured cutting the ribbon, and who lives in Pulton Place declared the park officially open for the local community.
Lynette Edwards, leader of SBHG Estate Pride team, said: "It is great to see the Pulton Place playpark finally open for residents to enjoy. We have worked hard over to get the park restored for children in the local community. The new park is an environmentally friendly play zone, encouraging children to learn about the natural world."
Belinda Donovan, Hammersmith and Fulham Councillor for Town ward added: “As the local councillor I was delighted to be invited to the opening. We on Town Ward have wanted this improvement for a long time and are thrilled with the outcome."
