Deopham Play Park Project 

Deopham and Hackford Parish Council are currently working on a project to improve the play equipment and parking at Deopham Playing Field. After a year of research, planning, sourcing quotes and funding for the project the first stage of installation of new play equipment  was completed in January 2023. After successful fundraising and receiving a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, the second stage of installation took place in January 2024. The final stage includes installing some further play equipment and the creation of a new car park. Fundraising for this stage is underway. Find out more about the project here.
