This week I have become aware of a group of young parents that have become involved in providing good play areas for our young people.
In the past play areas were provided by the Town Council.
Strict laws were in place to maintain this management of “Open Spaces.”
Time has moved things in a better direction.
In Southwell The Friends of SouthwellParks have set out to raise £100,00 to upgrade the equipment in the local park.
They have instructed the services of a worthwhile company to build the equipment.
Before anything was decided the local schools were asked to provide input.
Parks for People and WREN have given money.
The rest will be raised by street cake stalls etc.
This is a great move to let those people ,who have an interest in play areas, oversee their construction.
Community projects like these are the way forward in involving all in the management of our “Open Spaces”
