Situated on the east side of the village at the bottom of Wakemans is one of two play areas available for residents. A large playing field has on one side a basketball court with hard surfacing and on the other a variety of play equipment. A small climbing frame with bridges and a slide is perfect for toddlers and those finding their feet, along with a cradle-seat swing. For bigger children there are more swings, a see-saw and a more challenging climbing frame. There is also ample space around the equipment for ball games, as well as a couple of benches for those looking after the children to rest their weary limbs. The playground is fenced off with a self-close gate.
Spring 2022 will see the arrival of some new equipment.
The large playing field behind the village hall has a wide variety of equipment catering for children of all ages. If you head around the side of the hall you will find a separate play area devoted to toddlers with a small play unit and Wendy House set on a soft rubber surface. The main field has all weather football goals, a climbing frame to test even the most skilled adventurers as well as swings, a slide and various other pieces. A short walk across the main pitch takes you to the zip line - Perfect for older children and safely fenced off for those watching. As well as providing entertainment for the children, there is also a comprehensive range of outdoor gym equipment.
Spring 2022 will see the installation of a new basketball, football and cricket unit to offer another dimension to this shared village space.
