Support Dundridge Park

Following the news of grant from SITA Trust for the play area in Dundridge Park that was announced last month there is more good news to report – and you can help make it even better!

Img_0057Friends Of Dundridge Park have been chosen as one of the three projects in this region’s public vote for the Tesco Bags of Help initiative administered by Groundwork.

The project is to build a new path to the proposed new play area that will be suitable for all including push chairs, buggies and mobility scooters.

The public vote in local Tesco stores runs from 27 February until 6 March and will decide whether Dundridge will receive the £12,000, £10,000 or £8,000 award. All local Tesco Stores that show the Bags Of Help logo will be taking part including Metro and Express stores.

Please encourage friends and family to vote in Tesco’s to support the Dundridge Park project and share on social media outlets such as Twitter using the hashtag #BagsofHelp
