I'm sure everyone is pleased with the new developments on the play area - the swings, slide, tyre rotators and a new path - certainly children are coming regularly to play which is great to see. The Play Association, made up entirely of volunteers, has worked really hard in recent years to secure funding for equipment but it takes time. Currently we have two applications in for a new wooden climbing frame similar to that at Castle Howard and all being well that should go in this summer. That will pretty much complete the site.
The Play Association members check the site every day for litter and damage and we would be very grateful to hear from anyone willing to help out - a message can be left at Towlers the chemist with you name and contact number. Each member roughly does one week in six currently - the more volunteer litter pickers we have the less you will be called upon!
Even if you can't commit please do your bit by picking up any litter you see on the site - we certainly find the cleaner it is kept the less litter is dropped.
