Save Stonebridge Adventure Playground!

Save Stonebridge Adventure Playground!

Save Stonebridge, the last adventure playground, in Brent.

Why is this important?

For 46 years Stonebridge playground has served the community. It has supported 3 generations of children and young people with special events, camping trips, and opportunities for fun and learning. It’s well-used and well loved.

The playground has been crucial in the integration of many different ethnic and cultural groups including children with special needs. The playground has a lot of support not just from the community.

Former Olympic gold medalist, Audley Harrison MBE, who attended when he was a boy, has championed our cause.

And the local paper the Brent & Kilburn Times is behind the campaign: http://www.kilburntimes.co.uk/news/environment/stonebridge_adventure_playground_campaigners_reach_their_1_000_signature_petition_target_1_3826047

But we are a small charity fighting a large organisation, Brent Council. They want more homes and more school places for children. We say what happens after school, at weekends and in school holidays? Not just for the children of one school, but for many in this area; when there is nothing for them, nowhere to meet their friends,

We need to save this sanctuary in the midst of a concrete jungle for children and young people!
