RSPB Old Moor Upgrades Playground After Grant

Thursday July 25 2013

£50,000 grant for RSPB Old Moor £50,000 grant for RSPB Old Moor

RSPB Old Moor has upgraded its playground thanks to a £50,000 grant.

The grant, from WREN, has enabled the centre to install new climbing frames and a new heritage game trail has also been introduced, with traditional playground games such as hopscotch and leapfrog leading visitors around the area. WREN is a not-for-profit business which awards grants to community, conservation and heritage projects that are based near landfill sites.

A family hide has felt the benefit of the grant too, with more activities and games to be found inside to get children engaged in learning about nature.

Liane Holdsworth, RSPB visitor experience officer, said: "We've listened to what our visitors have told us and have created a place which will hopefully inspire generations to come.

'All our games and activities are designed to inspire and excite families, and encourage children to spend more time outdoors with nature.
We have something for families whatever the weather here at Old Moor this summer."

Went there with my family yesterday. It really is lovely,walking around the little lanes acting silly,it was like stepping back into my own childhood. The staff are very friendly,the food is nice and the little playground is lovely too. Just wish there was more beastys to "dip" out of the little ponds. One of my favourite places to be.
