South Avenue Play Area

Fundraising for South Avenue Park

South Avenue Park is one of the most central parks in Spondon, it is also a forgotten war memorial.

After the Armistice in 1918 a memorial in St Werburghs Church was unveiled. In addition to this the village wanted a memorial that could be used by the community. Fundraising continued with a view to acquiring a playing field. The donations raised by the people of Spondon were sufficient to buy the field known as Horse Croft. This later become South Avenue Park.

The park currently offers a lot less than it has the potential to in terms of facilities for the community. Over the last 25 years the play equipment on the park has slowly been removed leaving a small play area. This consists of a seesaw and two rockers.

Our mission is to make the new play area one of the best play areas in Derby. To do this we need to raise at least an additional £15,000 to support the new play area project.

This is going to be a challenge and we need your support to achieve it!
