We are delighted to announce that all the grant funding has been raised and groundworks have now started.
Our project is to create a fantastic community play park! We aim to provide an inclusive play park offering an enriching and varied play experience for children.
The existing facility is in real need of upgrade and expansion to offer a wider range of equipment essential to improving the wellbeing and development of children.
The rural village of Braemar lies 17 miles south of the nearest village of Ballater. It is a thriving village with a vibrant community and is also a popular tourist destination. The whole community is very supportive of the project and the recent local Community Action Plan identified a strong need for the play facilities in the village to be improved. The project also has the support of Invercauld Estate who lease the land to Aberdeenshire Council and Aberdeenshire Council who have already agreed financial support of £35,000.00. The project is being led by a group of parents and grandparents under the auspice of Braemar Community Ltd. Braemar Community Ltd is a registered charity and was set up in 2004 to undertake the development and operation of major projects on behalf of the community.
