Hilly Fields playground update

Coming attractions - the new playground is taking shape

Warmer weather is finally here and in the spring, a young child's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of sandpits. However, as these photos show, the Hilly Fields playground is still a building site - a pristine sandpit is currently fenced off.

Happily though, most of the hard work has been done and the project remains on course to open on time.

Friend of Hilly Fields Rachel explains:

The main part of work should be completed within days. There is a problem with the water supply, they have found the stop cocks but when they have been turned on there is no water. So seems they will be having to put a new supply in from the loo block.

We will be wanting to try and get grass and plants established before the playground is open, which will require a bit of patience from all.
