Playground Committee members Andrea Walker and Deanna Horsting accept a donation from Anne Bonter of Second Time Around. The Committee wants to replace the playground equipment in the Ashcroft pool park.

Donation for new Playground

Some Ashcroft residents are raising money to purchase new playground equipment for the pool park.

Andrea Walker and Deanna Horsting, representing the Ashcroft Playground Committee, were very pleased to accept a $1,500 donation from Anne Bonter of Second Time Around towards the purchase of new playground equipment for the Ashcroft Pool Park. The present playground equipment at the park is both outdated and suitable for only very young children.

The Playground Committee has carefully selected playground equipment that will be suitable for toddlers to teens, providing a wide variety of play opportunities. Local service clubs have been approached with requests for either financial assistance or partnerships opportunities, and plans are also underway for other fundraising initiatives. As many of you may know, playground equipment is quite expensive; however, the addition of new playground equipment at the Pool Park will definitely be a valuable addition for children, families and the community as a whole.

Anyone interested in contributing to this worthwhile community project or being on our planning committee is welcome to contact either Andrea (250 453 9402) or Deanna (250 453 9794).
