The group campaigning to revamp a popular Sheringham park has announced its latest plans to continue fund-raising £100,000 to complete a long overdue refurbishment.
The Sheringham Playpark Revamp Group are holding a series of events to raise money for new equipment for the Cromer Road playpark.
They plan to replace all of the present equipment, some believed to be 35 years old, with a play area aimed at all age ranges to include a new sandpit, shelters, play roundabout, gym equipment, and picnic area with shrubs and bushes.
The group will hold its third fund-raiser - a Body Shop Party - in the town at 8pm on Friday, October 12.
People are invited to attend the evening aimed at selling natural beauty products including skin care ranges, make-up, body butters, aromatherapy products, hair care items, and bath time goodies.
Refreshments will be served and the party will also be a chance to order Christmas goodies and look at some handmade designer gemstone jewellery.
Other events include a children’s Halloween party on October 28, a children’s Christmas party (date to be announced), and a Christmas card competition.
A prize will be awarded for the best card in each of the three categories and the winning designs will be printed and sold to raise funds for the project.
All designs must be based on a Christmas theme and entries must be submitted to Sheringham Library by October 20. Local businesses are also being urged to help sell the cards.
So far £1,600 has been raised towards to project.
● Tickets for the Body Shop Party are £3 per person and includes nibbles and a drink.
