Recreation and Play Parks


The Trust recognises that play and recreation areas are important to children’s development, providing places where they can have fun and pursue healthy activities. In recent years the Trust has helped provide equipment at over twenty recreation areas in towns and villages in Shepway and other nearby areas, working with a number of community groups, parish and district councils. From Lydd and New Romney to the Elham Valley and St Margaret’s Bay, major improvements have been made to the amenities available to young people, providing new play equipment specially designed to cater for a variety of age groups.  Some of these projects are described in more detail elsewhere on the site.

The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust has invested over £2 million  to support play park projects across the Shepway district and neighbouring areas.
