WF2016 Charity: Digswell Playing Fields
Having suffered from a lack of investment in overall maintenance and development, in 2013 the Digswell Residents Association (DRA) set down a ‘Vision’ for the improvement and development of the Digswell Playing Fields. Since then, with the support of Welwyn Parish Council, Digswell Brownies and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, the playing fields have seen the installation of new pieces of play equipment for children including a net pyramid; new footpath access to the playground; the creation of a riverside path; and the pond has been dredged and cleared of intrusive vegetation.
The DRA are now seeking to continue their work to include picnic benches and other seating (as requested by the Brownies!); information boards regarding the pond, riverside and history of the viaduct; and equipment to form a “trim trail” exercise area.
