Weybridge Men's Shed
Your Fund Surrey has granted £30,000 towards utilities connections and shed fit-out. The Weybridge Men's Shed Project is following a proven worldwide model and is one of almost 600 such initiatives throughout the UK. The broad objective of any shed is to relieve isolation and feelings of low self-esteem, predominantly, but not exclusively, in men, by providing a common sense of purpose, companionship, and a learning experience, whilst simultaneously using its facilities, skills and human resource for the benefit of other community groups. For more information, visit Weybridge Shed.
Claygate Recreation Ground Family Garden
Your Fund Surrey granted £35,000 to the Family Garden project. Claygate Recreation Ground (the Rec) is at the heart of our community, covering seven acres of land, and is used by over 10,000 people each year for sport and recreation. The Rec is the only large green space in the village accessible to all. It also has the only outdoor play area for children in the village. This project is now enabling all individuals, families, sporting and community groups, regardless of ability, to enjoy spending time outdoors, socialise with friends, family and the wider community promoting their health and wellbeing.

Claygate Community Pool
Your Fund Surrey granted £363,500 to the Claygate Community Pool project. This comprises of the redevelopment of the existing 20 x 7.5 metres outdoor swimming pool at Claygate Primary School. The development will convert the existing pool into a new indoor facility that will enable the whole community to use the pool all year round. A high-quality, long-life building is proposed to enclose the pool and provide necessary facilities including showers and changing rooms. The building will also incorporate a community room for use alongside the swimming pool. Relining of the existing pool and upgrading of some of the plant equipment will also be necessary to incorporate a ground source heat pump and solar panels.
