Thank you all for coming along to Georgie's dance show on Saturday 11th July. We had nearly 300 tickets sold which is fantastic! The raffle was also a huge hit and thank you to all the local businesses who gave generously.

A huge thank you to Georgie Deyn who so kindly selected us as her chosen good cause to donate the funds to. We know lots of children at her dance school will use the playground - not long to wait now :)

We can confirm we raised over £1000 at this event.

Hi, I’m Jacqui , I live on Lye Green Road and I am the Co-Chair of the Botley Playing Field Association. Apart from being involved in the BPFA, I am a mum to two cheeky young children and I run my own Occupational Psychology business.

I decided to get involved in the BPFA as I saw the passion and drive the Chair, Lauren, had for the playground project on our facebook group. At the time, she was doing a lot of the work herself and so I volunteered to help. Since I joined the committee, we have been so fortunate to get lots more support from the community and our committee has grown rapidly. It’s exciting to see things taking shape.

We are learning so much along the way on this journey – it’s definitely been a bumpy road so far and a big eye opener! I love the fact we are involving the community in the process, including ideas for the play park design. The more we all put in together, the better it will be. I love the fact the community want a trampoline, I know my kids will love this!

If you are reading this and want to help, that would be amazing! It doesn’t matter if you can only donate one hour of your time. Or just keep in touch with our progress on facebook, through our leaflet drops, our meetings and our website. Thanks!
