Play equipment at Norman Wodson


The Parish Council are trying to get quotes to replace the worn out play equipment. We have had difficulty engaging with suppliers due to high demand. We will require multiple quotes due to the very high cost, we hope to get the first quote during the second week of September...

As you will be aware, we were recently able to re-open the play facilities at Norman Wodson (Cold Christmas Lane). Unfortunately, two pieces (monkey bars and the larger of the two swing sets) have now failed their annual inspection and been found to pose a likely hazard. The council were then forced to take them out of service by taping them off. A few days later the tape was removed (without consultation) thereby exposing children to potentially dangerous equipment. We have now been forced to take more dramatic steps to ensure that this potentially dangerous equipment remains out of use. We appreciate that this is a very bad time for the equipment to be taken out of use and we are researching replacement equipment. We do not have an estimate for when this process will be completed as multiple estimates are required as the equipment is very expensive.
