SNAPSHOT: Ground force

Groundwork Camden & Islington opened two play areas on its Bacton Low Rise estate last week. MP for the borough Glenda Jackson went to the beach-themed opening party, along with local residents and their children who made sea birds on sticks. The play site areas used to be a barren green space and a work site for contractors carrying out house repairs. Money from the London Borough of Camden and the London Development Agency enabled Groundwork to build separate play sites for local toddlers and 6 to 12 year olds. Groundwork Camden & Islington has raised more than £500,000 over the past five years from charitable trusts, the private sector, central Government and Lottery funding, which it will spend on some of Camden's most deprived estates.
