The project team raised over £11,000 themselves. In addition to the £250,000 lottery grant, other supporters are the Landfill Communities Fund (£35,000), Postcode Lottery (£5,000). Scottish Borders Council helped put together the lottery bid and contributed over £24,000 worth of materials.
The Robertson Trust is expected to provide the final £10,000 this month.
The park will be set up in three circles, with earthworks providing new landscape features. It is proposed that the eastern circle will include swings, monkey bars and a slide set into an embankment. The central circle will have a tractor tyre swing, roundabout and large climbing frame, while there will be a see-saw, slide, play hut and timber animals in the western circle. New footpaths, seats and a zip wire will also be created.
