Glasbury Play Area Glasbury Play Area was officially opened on Saturday 11th May 2013 by Walter and Iona de Winton, who kindly donated the lease of the land. This was the culmination of 3 years of hard work by the Play Area Group and a grant of ÂŁ42,000 from the Big Lottery Fund. The event was coordinated by Sheenagh Finnie, Rachel Harding and Rhian Wilkie who also arranged the refreshments which were thoroughly enjoyed by everybody. Thanks also to local people who generously made cakes for the occasion and to Margaret Morris and her son Christopher, for allowing us to use their garden, opposite the Play Area.

There was badge making with Paul Hartley, face painting by Leah Downie, Splat the Rat with Paul Greenow, a coconut shy and the children had great fun on the new equipment. Everyone in the Play Area Group was there helping in different ways and a great time was had by all. The Village Hall kindly lent us some Tables and Chairs for the day. Chris Davies, our local County Councillor, also a member of the Play Area Group, gave a vote of thanks to everyone who had helped and to those who attended, also to Black Mountains Lions who donated a picnic table.Thanks also to local firms and people who helped us with donations and attended our functions. Paul Hartley (Chair) and Pat Yeomans Sec/Treasurer, were presented with flowers from Jo Northam, Chair of Glasbury Community Council at the beginning and end of the Project.
