Play Area Update – Faulkland Playing Field

Hemington, Hardington & Foxcote Parish Council have embarked on a project to replace the play equipment on the Playing Field in Faulkland.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 the Play Area was closed last year and the Parish Council have now taken the decision that the wooden tower climbing frame with rope bridge and rope wall will need to be replaced.

Tape has been applied to the bridge and one tower due to a missing wooden slat on the rope bridge linking the two towers and the rope bridge and second tower will be removed shortly.

In the meantime, Cllrs have risk assessed and deemed the slide tower safe to use together with the tractor and swings.

In terms of timescales for the project, the Parish Council have so far received one quote, with a further quote in hand and 3 more requested. The Parish Council will need to apply for an secure grant funding to ensure that this project can go ahead.

The Parish Council apologise for any inconvenience whilst some of the play equipment is not in use and thank you for your understanding. Cllrs will continue to patrol and monitor and re-apply the tape/signage if it is removed again and efforts will be made to promptly remove the bridge and tower structure in the first instance of this project.
