Work has started this week on the new playpark fencing, which will encompass the entire children’s play area. This has been necessary to enable the park to pass Health and Safety and environmental health criteria. The new fencing will keep dogs and other animals off the recreation area, and it’s due in part at least to people allowing their dog’s to foul the play equipment. Local builder Ed Tarr is undertaking the work on behalf of the Parish Council, grateful thanks to Ed for this work.
