Closure of the Children’s Play Area – Ridlington Playing Fields

This is an important advice to all members of the Public.

The Trustees of the Playing Fields would like to advise that as a result of our recent health and safety assessment of the Ridlington Playing Fields conducted by the Trustees, we have taken the decision to close the ‘Children’s Play Area’ until further notice.

This is because some of the timber framing is now in very poor condition and represents a  danger to safety. Also the junior swings unfortunately need to be dismantled as they also are no longer fit for purpose.

Decisions need to be taken on the way forward for this area and it is proposed this matter will be a key part of our deliberations at our next Trustee meeting in January 2020, after which we will update you on future plans and proposed projects.

In the meantime, given the danger to safety that all this equipment currently presents, you will see that we have temporarily fenced off the entire play area so that access is prevented for the immediate future.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any questions regarding this closure.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
