Northfields has two play areas, one for small children and the other for older children. The almost new junior area has suffered from a broken “cone climber” for some time and a replacement is being sought. This is very disappointing as it was the most popular piece of equipment on the site. The swings and climbing frame for older children has suffered from the amount of heavy rain and, whilst the Parish council are trying to resolve the problem, a solution is not easy
Pasture Close also has two play areas, one for small children and the other is finally almost completed with equipment for balance and play. There are some outstanding problems to solve but it is hoped that this equipment can and will be used properly. A Public Space Protection Order has been placed on the area and police notices will be erected to notify residents of this and what powers the police will have against any anti social behaviour.
