Dear all. On the Playing Fields Committee, we are responsible for the upkeep and improvement of the Pavilion, Playing Fields and Play Area. Recently, we had a ROSPA inspection letting us know that the safety of some items of Play Equipment had slipped below acceptable standards. This, along with our own inspections and concerns from members of the village, has meant that we have had to remove the swing seats. I very much hope that this will be a temporary measure as we are looking into replacement parts in the short term and at a much needed revamp of the whole play area in the longer term.
I am sure that you understand that funding has much to do with this and we are exploring ways of raising funds through grants as well as our own events. If you would like to volunteer to help us in any capacity (from committee member to assisting at one of our events), we would very much like to hear from you. You can get in touch through firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are holding our AGM in early September (date TBC) and would love to see you there if you can spare the time. With many thanks for your understanding.
