Recreation Ground Slides
The steps on metal slide in the toddlers play area have been replaced and the slide repainted.
Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, both the slides on the Captain Mannering have had to be taken out of service.
The slides were found to be split and broken, so had to be taken out of service. This is due to an manufacturing / material fault and the Parish Council are taking this up with the supplier. A new metal slide and an alternate climbing pole have been ordered and should be installed soon.
The Parish Council apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause: Please be assured that we are taking all possible steps to remedy the situation and to return all the play equipment to use as soon as possible.
New Play Equipment
The Parish Council have installed new Play Equipment on the Recreation Ground. Judging by the amount of after-school activity of youngsters keen to try it out, the equipment appears to be a great success already.
The existing fenced area, including the Swings, Slide and Rocking Horse, will be closed shortly to enable this to be re-painted. The Parish Council ask for your understanding while this is being done.
Unfortunately the installation of the fencing around the new play equipment has been delayed due to us having to source the correct fencing to the required safety standard. Quotes have now been received and the fencing will be installed soon, making a dog-free area where children can play without the risk of dog-fouling.
