New play equipment
Thank you so much to everyone who shared and gave feedback on our post about the new play equipment for the Country Park.
It was a close vote between the options but we're pleased to announce the winner was....drum roll....Option B - the pirate-themed Wicksteed design. All being well it should be installed in the spring.
