Assistant Chief Constable Tim Magwick joined local residents and Council staff at the launch of the new playground on Foxwood Lane today. The equipment is already proving to be very popular with children with an estimated 500 having already visited the playground. It is hoped that a similar facility will be provided on the Grange Lane park later in the year.
Local Councillor Steve Galloway said, ” The playground is proving to be very popular with children. Working with the local Neighbourhood Policing Team, the Council is trying to provide facilities which address some of the boredom issues raised by younger teenagers. I am grateful to the staff who have worked very had to provide this new facility which has the advantage of being both robust and challenging for active youngsters”
