PLAYGROUND OPENING NEWS

NEWTON PLAY AREA OPENING  – RE-ARRANGED 

SUNDAY 8th JULY 2018 at NOON 

Newton Parish Council is delighted to announce that Newton Play Area will now open on SUNDAY 8TH JULY AT NOON

Snagging issues have been addressed and the newly replaced turf and seeded areas need a little extra time to settle. For this reason, the gates will remain secured until the opening date so please refrain from accessing the area until this time.

In this hot, dry weather and with a regular supply of water onsite from James Fisher, we are on a mission to keep the new turf watered so please bear with us whilst nature does its thing with a little help from us! The ground conditions will be all the better for it!

The 8th of July has also been chosen to coincide with Newton’s fifth annual and very popular sports day, so another great community event for Newton to look forward to this summer!

There will be some refreshments and entertainment provided at this fun event so watch this space for further updates

PLAY AREA OPENING 16TH JUNE – POSTPONED

 

The decision has been taken not to open the new play this weekend. This is due primarily to safety concerns over the ground conditions which remain very uneven where the grass matting and new turf has not bedded in well to date. This is a regrettable decision which has not been taken lightly by those involved. Despite seeking regular assurances from the third party supplier on this matter both prior to and during installation, it was concluded that the play area in its current state remains unsatisfactory due to trip hazards.

 

Rest assured the Parish Council is working with the third party to get the play area safe, operational and open for use at the earliest opportunity, having made the sound decision to get things right now, rather than run the risk of a later closure during the summer holidays.

 

Watch this space for further updates and a new play area opening date.

 

Don’t forget StreetFest at Newton House Farm goes ahead as planned on Saturday! Tickets are still available for both events.

This will be a family friendly event THAT PROVIDES our children WITH THE first OPPORTUNITY to ENJOY USE OF the equipment

 

REFRESHMENTS will be provided
