MUGA Fun Day at Thorpe

On Saturday I joined local residents and families in Thorpe for a spooky themed fun day to celebrate the opening of the new multi-use games area (MUGA). Thorpe Community Centre was decked out for Halloween as I handed out prizes for the best spooky costumes and judged a play area themed colouring competition.

But the main event was the opening of the brand new MUGA, which had been delayed three weeks when thieves stole vital equipment from the site.

It really is a fantastic new play area, and a credit to the community, who have fought so hard to get it ready despite all the setbacks. This shows what a hardworking community group, with the support of local Councillors and the neighbourhood police team, can achieve.

It’s vital to have decent things for young people to do after school and at weekends, and I know the ambitions don’t stop here. The residents group are currently bidding for funding to create a new play area for younger children, as well as for the transformation of the community centre.
