The resurfacing of the play park at Millstream Meadow was completed earlier this month. We hope that users will notice a distinct improvement in the safety surfacing. Our thanks to Rhino Play for their efficiency and the quality of their work.
The repairs to the pagoda at Fore Street Park were also completed early in October and the structure is now safe to use. Our thanks to CP & DC Construction for carrying out the remedial work.
The damage to the pagoda was wholly due to vandalism over an extended period of time. Sadly, we have had to sacrifice some of the rustic charm of the shelter to make it rather stronger. We will also be painting the roof supports with anti-vandal paint to try to prevent children and youths climbing on the roof. The repairs that have been carried out have not been cheap and really should not have been necessary. We really need the help of the community in reporting vandalism to us when it occurs. If you know who the vandals are then please report them to the police.
On a related matter, a member of our community seems to think it is acceptable to allow their dog to toilet in the MUGA. This is happening on a regular basis. If you know who this person is please let us know at the Town Hall and we will take action.
