Community Playground

Melling Community Playground was built as a joint venture between the Parish Council and Melling St Wilfrid CE Primary School with support from the Countryside Agency and various other local groups.

The playground has been designed to enable the children of Melling and surrounding areas to enjoy a range of play opportunities as the community believe that play is an essential part of children’s physical and mental growth. It provides the mechanism for children to explore the world around them and through which they develop and practise skills. It is essential for:

  • Physical, emotional and spiritual growth
  • Intellectual and educational development
  • Acquiring social and behavioural skills.

The playground is sited in our school grounds and is used by the Community. Our children enjoy the opportunites offered by this resource and spend sunny afternoons enjoying the space with families after school. Please see our Playground Policy for more information.
