Another Tree Down

Another tree has come down in the gales and snow – this one blocking the footpath near the picnic area.

CIMG6118The council have been informed.

If it not cleared by Saturday it should NOT cause a problem for parkrunners as they can just make a minor detour around the obstruction. The parkrun Race Director has been informed.

Playground to Get Refurb……

The playground on Barnby Dun Road is to get a refurb. Some current equipment will be replaced by new kit due to it having reached its sell by date and may become dangerous.

Web Cone1. The current ‘spiders web’ will be a replaced by a rope cone that spins round;
2. The roundabout will be replaced by a ‘dish’ that is suitable for the less able;
3. There will be a ‘Jetski on a spring’;
4. Two new seats within the area;
5. The red safety matting will be covered with a green grassmat type safety covering.

It should all look pretty good when completed and should be sorted by Easter. There may a little inconvenience while the work is being carried out – so please be patient.
