Amanda's Action Kids will be down at the Dukes Meadows Paddling pool at 11.15am on Sunday 17th September.

Amanda offers interactive development classes for children aged 4 months to 5 years and mums and dads can join in too. This is a free session, but parents can make a donation to Friends of Dukes Meadows, who started the project to build the paddling pool and continue to work to improve the park.

The new paddling pool at Dukes Meadows had its much anticipated opening on Saturday 5th August.  Delighted children showed their appreciation of the all the hard work that has gone into creating this fantastic outdoor play area by splashing around in the sunshine.

The creation of the pool is the culmination of 6 years work by the local community through the Friends of Dukes Meadows. The £380,000 cost of the project was funded through the Friends social enterprises such as the Sunday Farmers & Fine foods Market and grants from the London Marathon Trust, Living Spaces, Garfield Weston Foundation, Brett Trust and Hounslow Council. Stanhope PLC donated trees and shrubs to landscape the area.

Friends Chairman Paul Allen said “The construction of the pool is the culmination of 6 years work by local people. We are all very proud of what our community has achieved and very grateful to all the people who have helped us. It will be a great resource for local families.”
