   Foxley Fields - new play surfacing for Swing & Stone Tower    4 October, 2017

We are delighted that Sovereign Play have arrived this morning to replace the play surfacing for two items of play equipment at Foxley Fields.

You may remember that we have a number of incidents of broken glass found in the existing play bark on and around these play items. After much clearane and raking by our Parish Warden we found that we did not have a sufficient depth of play bark remaining to ensure the safe use of these items and they were cordoned off.

We have been investigating different play surfacing - play bark, wetpour, mulch - and the decision was mae by the Parish Council to replace with mulch due to durability as well as cost considerations.

Sovereign Play have arrived at Foxley Fields this morning to commence this work. They have Site Security and Welfare criteria to be met so you can expect to see a container situated at the back of the Parish Office as well as HERAS fencing around the play items. The work is expected to take up to two days to complete.

We are very much looking forward to having the new play surfacing for the Swing and Stone Tower in place and would ask for your patience over the next couple of days as this work is undertaken.
