Trampoline at the Rec

Last week a bird somehow got trapped underneath the trampoline at the Rec. Following guidance from the manufacturer of the trampoline we have, for health and safety reasons, fenced off this piece of equipment until we can get this properly inspected and can ensure that the trampoline has been reinstalled correctly.

Thank you for your understanding on this matter.

Thank you for all you do.

Rubbish in the Recreation Ground

Our maintenance person has advised that on his litter picking rounds he has had to pick up soiled nappies at the Recreation ground.

For the health of those using the Rec, please ensure that soiled nappies are either correctly bagged and put in the bins provided or taken home and put in the bin there.

Thank you
