During this current period of heavy usage and wet weather, the grass within the Town Council's Play Areas is becoming very wet and muddy and in some cases irrepairably damaged .
We're sure some parents may be happy for their children to get muddy, however the Town Council is concerned about the slip hazard for both adults and children - especially elderly relatives.
Whilst the Town Council will do everything it can to keep the play areas open, which will include putting down sand or roping off areas of grass, there may be some occasions where a play area will have to temporarily close until the weather improves, the grass has a chance to recover and it is safe to walk on for all visitors
The Play Areas are inspected on Monday and Friday mornings and an update will be published below on their status.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO USE THE PLAY AREAS RESPONSIBLY AND RESPECT ALL THE SAFETY SIGNAGE.
