A fantastic local fundraising effort has provided new play equipment for Kirriemuir’s Neverland Playpark.
The current wild weather and enduring COVID-19 pandemic might make fun times feel a little far, far away right now, but Neverland will have an extra sparkle for the children when better days return.
Local resident Sandra Affleck kickstarted funding for more playpark equipment in memory of her husband, David who died in 2018.
Mr Affleck devoted much of his life to the education, health and welfare of children and young people and he was the first Headmaster of Southmuir (1973) and Northmuir Primary Schools (1977-1995).
He took huge pleasure in watching his own grandchildren playing on Neverland’s “pirate ship” and supported the “Barrie 150” project, which spurred the creation of the playpark on The Hill.
Sandra’s fundraising effort has been generously buoyed by the support of Mark Guild of Guild Homes, Stewart McFarlane of William Lyall Funeral Directors, the Kirriemuir Regeneration Group and Angus Council and total of £4000 was reached to buy and install the play equipment - two spinning bowls and a hammock, which now grace the park and are ready for the local children to enjoy.
