You may have seen the temporary fencing erected around the play area at the top of Springfield Park.
This is the culmination of a long campaign by David, Andy and myself to improve the facilities here. Local residents have been complaining about the state of the equipment and the surfacing of the site, which has become tired and in need of an upgrade.
When the play area was put in, a link path connected it to Beauly Drive but not Sparrow Hall Drive. Parents taking their kids to the play area in wet weather from here would often find themselves with very muddy shoes afterwards! We've also been pushing for a path to complete the connection across the park.
As you can see, that's being built now. It will mean that residents from Whinfield Park can cross the playing field in wet weather to get to ASDA and Whinfield Primary. Together with the revitalised play area, it represents another significant investment by the Council in our community.
I'm off to the Local Government Association Annual Conference in Bournemouth now - back and blogging on Friday!
