Children to benefit from new play equipment

Monday, September 17, 2018

An exciting new climbing structure is set to be installed at Hockley Woods playground for local children to enjoy.

The play area has been closed, and will remain so for approximately three weeks, for work to remove a  climbing frame and roundabout which had reached end-of-life.

These will be replaced with a new structure featuring a range of innovative climbing apparatus, with raised platforms and a slide.

Cllr Arthur Wiliams, Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: “There was a need to replace some existing equipment at the Hockley Woods playground as it had reached end of life. This was a fantastic opportunity to find something a bit more creative for our children to enjoy – the new equipment allows youngsters to think about what routes they might take to climb and play, which aids both their mental and physical development.”

The Council will update our website and social media when the play area re-opens to the public.
