Here's a huge well-done to local resident Jamie Grundy - and all those who contributed to his crowd-funding campaign to help fill the children's playground at Clos Parc Radur with new play equipment. (Previous story here).
At the time of writing, £2,540 has been raised - passing the target of £2,500!
There is still time to contribute - and the more money we can collect, the better the playground will be. Here's where you can donate.
So who, exactly, is Jamie Grundy? We asked him for a picture - so that you can recognise him. He sent us the one posted below. Jamie's the chap on the right.
Words fail us!
In the meantime, preparatory work continues, to redevelop the playground (where equipment was removed, after the footings were rusted away by mud and water flowing over the site). The community council, Cardiff Council and the Parc Radyr Management Company raised enough money (£30,000) to fill three-quarters of the circle - so Jamie's work will ensure that, for the first time ever, the park will be full of play equipment.
We need to prevent the flow of mud and water before installing new equipment. A drainage survey has been completed - and the cost of dealing with the problem will be around £15,000. That money has to be found before we can install the new equipment (which Cardiff Council has in storage).
Readers are welcome to encourage the leader of Cardiff Council (email@example.com) to find the money to undertake the drainage works.
