Greg was invited to formally open the newly revamped Goudhurst playground today following a big community fundraising effort.
The Parish Council led the £34,000 fundraising initiative after the much of the old play equipment in the Back Lane playground fell into disrepair and had to be taken out.
Speaking after the opening Greg said: “The new children’s playground in Goudhurst is a magnificent example of community spirit. The fundraising and construction were all completed despite challenges of the Covid crisis. In years to come, as it is enjoyed by future generations of Goudhurst children, it will be remembered that even in the middle of a dark time Goudhurst came together to make this most delightful village even better.”
