It's been a long time coming, but work will finally be starting in the next few weeks on replacement play equipment on the Ridgegrove Estate.
I've been working with local residents for this for some considerable time and battling to prevent the loss of the only accessible play area for local children and families. I'm delighted that this is finally getting the go ahead.
The old equipment on both the upper and lower play areas was pretty dated and has either been taken out or is on the verge of being ripped out on health and safety grounds.
Officers have agreed to a brand new play area on the upper green with new equipment, new flooring and a new safety fence. This is a great investment in our local community.
We are still working on what can go on the middle play area - I am hoping for some natural play logs, but the money has to be found.
