Closure of under 8’s playground update

folp Featured, General

Like many users of the Park, Friends of Longford Park (FOLP) were extremely concerned to hear of the closure of the Under 8s playground and issued a statement to that effect 7th October, see https://friendsoflongfordpark.org.uk/closure-of-under-8s-playground/. Since then, we have been told that bark is not a temporary option and that as the work involves tendering for a specialist contractor, “They would like to have the work completed by the end of Nov but can’t promise that.” The Chair of FOLP, Richard Bond is meeting the Exec Member for Parks, Liz Patel, on Monday, a meeting set up by fellow committee member Councillor Anne Duffield, who is herself seeking an update. We hope that we will be able to share more specific information this coming week.
