Following an award of £13537 from the Community Windfarm Fund, the Parish Council has completed the installation of new play equipment for children aged 5-8. Up till then the park only catered for 8-13 year olds.
The new equipment was manufactured and installed by the specialist company, Playdale.
In order to choose the right equipment, a local group of mums and children met to pour over catalogues and ideas. A social media page was set up and a suggestion box provided in the Village Shop. The children in the school were also asked for their ideas. The equipment chosen was based entirely on their choices.
The additional items include a Gravity Bowl, a Spinner and a Play Galleon. When I called round to take these photos a mum and her child were busy enjoying the new equipment. “It’s an amazing playpark, now!” she said.
