Around 8 o’clock on the morning of Saturday August 1st the first collection of children christened the Lewes Canalfront Playground. The swings were swinging, the spring whales were springing, and little feet were running everywhere. This is quite remarkable considering just 5 days earlier this same area consisted of little more than dirt and mud.
The following day, in expressing his admiration for the completed playground, a prominent long-time Lewes resident mentioned that this was the largest volunteer project in the town’s recent history.
The quality of our experience and accomplishment is a direct result of the individuals who participated in this team effort. All of you, laborer, designer, financier, business partner, administrator, equipment & service provider, recruiter, were absolutely vital to our project’s success.
