The Long Awaited Frettenham Play/Exercise Area
In the only rain free moments of Friday 6th December, some of the villagers and children from Frettenham School gathered round the newly installed play area on the playing field at Frettenham Village Hall.The Chairman of Broadland District Council Mrs Karen Vincent who was accompanied by her husband Shaun had been invited to cut the tinsel and open the gates. David Yaxley the Parish Council Chairman opened the ceremony with lots of children listening and eagerly waiting for the gates to open. The efforts of all those involved were mentioned and a big thank you went to Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund for a grant of almost £80,000.00
The Reverend Christopher Engelsen then did a small blessing for the play area.
The buzz of excitement was growing from the crowd of children as Karen Vincent walked over to cut the tinsel and officially open the gate. As she opened the gate and stood aside the children rushed through and headed towards the climbing frame where they punched the air with triumph. This was the moment of unfettered joy which made all the efforts of so many in Frettenham know that it had all been worth while. The adults also went over to the exercise equipment and were having almost as much fun as the children.
It was an amazing celebration of a community.
