Get involved & support our playground
Community assets for all to enjoy
As we approach the end of 2020, the refurbishment and modernisation of Trent Memorial Hall is almost complete. We are enormously grateful to everyone who has supported this project, with donations, hands-on help and attendance at our fundraising events. We hope that, as times begin to return to normal, everyone will be pleased at the outcome which reflects a terrific level of village support.
There just remains one key piece of the modernisation jigsaw – reinstating the play area on the village green. For many years children in Trent and at the school were able to play on some play equipment on the village green, particularly a large wooden tractor. Unfortunately all the equipment had to be taken down some years ago as it had become old and unsafe. At that stage the Hall Committee’s priority was refurbishing the Hall but we are now keen to reinstate a new playground. A group backing this development has already raised some £2,500 but we need to raise more. This is particularly important as we are applying for a range of grants and funders like to see that applicants are also doing what they can to raise their own funds.
During the Covid pandemic it is very difficult to hold “live” events. So we have set up a JustGiving page through which donations towards the new playground can be made. If you want to donate, please click on this link:

Hall Improvement Fund
The Memorial Hall was built to commemorate the men of Trent who fought and died in the Great War. We still need funds to help finish the extension of the Hall to provide a flexible and attractive community facility to meet the needs of the local community now and for future generations. We welcome your support.
