Park-Swings

Today is a sad day for the youngsters of Tattenhall. An engineer's inspection has found that the swings are no longer safe and the Parish Council who are responsible for the play area in the Park have taken immediate action. The chains and unsafe shackles have been removed by local builder, Mr T Charmley.

There are no immediate plans to replace the the swings but a spokesperson for the Council said "The playground on the Park has almost reached the end of its life and the Parish Council is now drawing up plans to build a new one this year. It would be very helpful to hear from parents and their children as to what types of equipment they would like to have. We can't promise to please everyone but we can try! We would also like to have two or three parents on the working group who can represent the views of those who use the playground".

To give the working group your ideas or join the group, call in at Alison's Coffee Shop or email Alison on alison@alisonpritchard.wanadoo.co.uk
