There are more than 40 public play areas in our parish, 21 of which are managed and maintained by the Parish Council’s Play Park Officer and Environment & Landscape Team.

Several of these play areas were brought under parish management in 2022 in need of upgrades.  Funds have been allocated from our budget in order to make improvements, and we would like to ask for residents’ patience while this work is planned and carried out.
