Tea room toddler mums pave the way for play area

 Published on: 20th September 2016   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

A group of determined mums are getting into their stride as they inch closer to their goal of £10,000. Last August, My Radlett & Shenley News looked ahead to the Shenley Tea Rooms Toddler Area Project’s (STRTAP) family fun day at Shenley Chapel and now, after counting the pennies, the group can reveal that £3,300 was raised during the three hour event, meaning they are closing in on their quintuple figure goal. The Mayor of Hertsmere, Peter Rutledge, was one of 700 people in attendance for the event. The Mayor judged the bake off competition and conducted the raffle draw before finishing with a short speech. STRTAP is run by a group of local mums intending to create a baby and toddler area in the grounds of Shenley Park beside the Café in the Orchard as there is no purpose built toddler playground in the local area. A spokeswoman for the group, Jenna Cash, said: “The committee would like to thank all those who attended the family fun day as well as everyone who volunteered, had a stall, donated their equipment, a raffle prize or made a donation. Hear what else Jenna Cash had to say, and more, in the October edition of My Radlett & Shenley News, which will be distributed on September 30. Picture courtesy of Yakir Zur Photography
