1155 Wallingford Fireworks Display 2020

We know how much you all look forward to the Wallingford Fireworks Display every year, and over the past 5 years we have been able to donate over £75,000 to 38 local charities as a result of your generosity.

1155 has been monitoring the evolving government guidelines with regards the holding of events in public spaces recently.

We have had to take the inevitable decision to cancel the 2020 Wallingford Fireworks Display. While this may not come as a surprise to many of you, the impact that this will have on the charities that 1155 support will be considerable. Please continue to support those charities, either directly, or through a donation to 1155 (https://wallingford1155.co.uk/about-wallingford-1155/), and thank you to those of you who have already donated. We will pass 100% of those donations onto the local charities that were otherwise relying on proceeds from the fireworks display.

For over 5 years Wallingford Fireworks has made its mark no thanks to our very own Illusion Fireworks Ltd. The fireworks industry has been hit extremely hard by the pandemic so we would like to encourage families to continue the tradition of celebrating bonfire night at home this year and to support Illusion Fireworks. You may purchase incredible fireworks for gardens of all shapes and sizes from their ‘Legendary Fireworks’ shop in Ayres Yard. The shop will be opening on Monday 12 th October everyday from 11am to 6pm.

1155 and Illusion Fireworks will continue to make plans for 2021. We will be back with a bigger and better Wallingford Fireworks Display and bonfire! Thank you for your continued support through what has been a challenging period for all of us, and we look forward to welcoming you back to an 1155 event very soon.

We have an endless need for more amazing volunteers, please contact Mark ( [email protected]) should you wish to give something back and get involved in the running of 1155 events.

Playground Opening – 7th April 2019 Thanks to all who attended to the Grand opening of the new playground and outdoor gym equipment. It was a lovely afternoon to celebrate our new facilities at the Recreation Ground. Some photo highlights are below. More photos of the big event (taken by Eibe the playground manufacture) can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/eibeplay/page1

UPDATE, November 2018:

It is with great thanks from the following providers that we have secured the necessary funds to proceed with the project to update the Playground and add a new Outdoor Gym.

SODC                                                                                                                   £99,790

WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund                                                 £80,040

ACTIVE SPACES *                                                                                          £5,000

Agrivert                                                                                                              £500

Howbery Park                                                                                                  £300

Waitrose                                                                                                            £240

Homebase Property Management                                                         £150

There are also contributions of £513 from the community donated in memory of the former Parish Council Chairman John Bellamy.

In addition Crowmarsh Parish Council is contributing to the project a sum of approximately £35,000.  This includes £8604 to FCC Recycling UK Ltd to facilitate the WREN grant.

With a total of £185,000 worth of grants from our three main funding providers Crowmarsh Parish Council is now planning the commencement of the project.  Due diligence has been carried out and Eibe has been appointed contractor for the New Playground and Outdoor Gym Installation.

Dates to Remember: Crowmarsh Playground closed from 8th January until approximately Easter 2019

Work is scheduled to commence on the 8th January with an estimated handover mid to late March – therefore the playground and surrounding area will be off limits during this time.

We look forward to being able to welcome you all back to the New Playground and New Outdoor Gym with a Grand Opening around Easter.

UPDATE, September 2018:

FUNDING SECURED

Subject to legal requirements Crowmarsh Parish Council is happy to report that sufficient funding has been secured such that the New Playground and Outdoor Gym project can go ahead.

Many thanks to the providers, SODC, WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund and ACTIVE SPACES (The London Marathon Charitable Trust and Fields Trust) for their contributions, and thanks to the community for your letters of support and feedback helping to shape the project and its outcome.

Crowmarsh Parish Council

UPDATE, 8 February 2018:

Planning Approved

We are pleased to report we now have planning approval for the play area upgrade and addition of a gym area.

For those who missed seeing the plans, please see below. Some of these drawings and images are currently on display in the Crowmarsh Primary School hall, they will stay up for two weeks after the half term break.  There will also be a display during the Coffee morning at Crowmarsh Village Hall on Saturday 10th March 10.00 till 12.00.

Please note the design has considered requests for equipment made in our previous survey in spring last year, which had 215 people supporting the principle of a new improved playground and 126 supporting the gym.

Grant Applications

We need external funding for this project to be realised, which the Parish Council will now be seeking through grant applications.

You can help us with the process with your written support of the proposed playground and or the gym.

To help secure external funding we would like to provide further evidence to potential funders that local people support the proposed design and equipment.  This means we need you to send letters or e-mails to us (The Parish Council) supporting the new play area and gym, specifically referring to the design features and which aspects will be most beneficial to you and your family.  Please include your name. Where applicable please include comments / quotes from the children (noting their ages) who would benefit from these improvements.

Written support will be collated by Michelle Reynolds.  Letters can be sent into school addressed to Michelle.  Alternatively, e-mails can be sent to [email protected].  These responses will be collated and submitted as part of our grant applications.

Expressing your personal support could make the difference in securing the necessary funds for this great project to be realised. 

Many thanks, in anticipation.
