HELLO

We are 'Friends' of Kennet Way Park

We are a group of friendly and smiley residents (mainly made up of mums + dads) from Oakley, a village in Hampshire and we want to make a positive change in our community.

We are currently fundraising to renovate our local green space area, by creating a space that becomes the heart of our village. A space that, unites a community, encourages people to spend more quality time together, to get outside and play, to socialise and give back to our community. Kennet Way Park will be a place for everyone, no matter your age.

Our Mission

What we are setting out to do and why we want to do it...

Our mission (and it is a big one) is to raise a total of £125,000 to renovate, extend and build a brand new, exciting, creative and imaginative play space for the children, teenagers, families and residents of Oakley to enjoy for years to come.

Kennet Way Park is in desperate need of some TLC. We are a large village with over 1000 children but the park, as lucky as we are to have one, unfortunately, does not captivate children for any real length of time. Most of the equipment is old and outdated. The area lacks character but has the potential to be a really fantastic space.

We want to create a space that becomes the heart of our village. A space that, unites a community, encourages people to spend more quality time together, to get outside and play, to socialise and give back to our community. Kennet Way Park will be a place for everyone, no matter your age.

We have until September 2019 to raise the funds and we hope to have a completed project installed and ready to use by autumn 2020.
