    Press Release

    Hayfield Parish Council has been awarded a grant of £10,000 by the National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) towards renewal and improvement of the play equipment in Little Hayfield’s village playground. Much of the current equipment is at the end of its life.

    Julie Galano, Head of Funding at NLCF, said "Receiving this award is a mark of quality of the work the Council is doing to support its community".

    Cllr David Toft, Chair of Hayfield Parish Council, said "We are delighted to receive this grant which, added to the Parish Council's own financial contribution to this project, will make a real difference to the amount of improvement we are able to make to Little Hayfield's playground during 2019. We intend to start work on site as soon as we can, and we look forward to seeing the much-improved facilities in use for the community later this year".
