About Martins Croft Play Area Project

This is a community project involving civilian and military volunteers to improve the play area in Colerne, Wiltshire. Through grants, local fundraising and donations we buy and install exciting and stimulating play equipment suitable for children with disabilities and/or additional needs.

We run free art workshops focusing on recycling and the environment for local children and plan to broaden this to include gardening and nature workshops in 2020.

Colerne Parish Council own the land Martins Croft Play Area is on and have given us permission and their support to go ahead with this project.

If you have any comments, ideas or would like to get involved we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us:
