As a number of residents will be aware, especially those who have recently visited the Gutterscroft play area, over recent months there have been a number of incidences of vandalism to the play equipment & safety surfaces, the most recent being the destruction of the slide. The Parish Council is currently establishing cost & timescale for work to make the existing equipment safe & ‘presentable’ in the short term i.e. painting, repairs to the safety surfaces & removal of the supports to the American Cage Swing – cage previously removed following damage earlier in the year. With regard to the longer term, the play provision sub-committee of the Parish Council has just submitted its final report, with recommendations for improvement of the Gutterscroft play area, to the Parish Council who will now consider the appropriate course of action to take.
