Following the annual inspection of play equipment by an independent Contractor, it was reported that the play equipment in Tamar Close was unsafe. The Outside Services Committee immediately closed off the equipment and quotes were sought for replacing the equipment. The new equipment has now been installed and the park is once again open for youngsters to use.
The official opening took place on Thursday 27th September by Deputy Portreeve and ably assisted by his youngest son Winston, who has been eagerly awaiting the opening of the equipment. There was a good turnout despite the weather and the youngsters were all eager to play on the equipment and the consensus of opinion was ‘brilliant’.
There is still some work to be done in the park with clearing the area and replacing the fencing, which will be carried out during the Autumn months.
