Residents attempt to raise £100,000 for Stoke play area
Residents in Stoke-on-Trent are attempting to raise £100,000 to renovate a play area in a park near Cornes Street.
The Joiners Square Residents' Association has launched a campaign to generate enough funds to spruce up the beleaguered facility as well as buying the lease of the land off Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
Association chairman Peter Yates told The Sentinel: "Plans for a new play area have been a long time in the making. Of course the funding will be completely down to us and we hope that more local businesses come on board because we have had a fantastic response."
Two years ago the government set aside £53,000 for improvements but withdrew the money due to public sector cutbacks which left residents "gutted".
Joiners Square residents are hoping that their play area receives the same treatment a facility in Harrogate, Yorkshire, got following an arson attack.
