The works due to start on the play equipment have been delayed owing to the current weather conditions and a saturated playing field. The field has been examined and it is now anticipated that no work will commence until January. Another inspection is scheduled for 6th January 2020.
Dear Residents of Whatton / Aslockton.
We would like to advise all residents that commencing from Monday 18th November 2019, work on a new and improved playground will begin on the sports field at Dark Lane, Whatton. Contractors will be on site over a period of a month (weather permitting) to remove and replace new items of play equipment, along with some adult gym machines, new landscaping and picnic benches.
A temporary perimeter fence will be erected and we politely ask that during this period, parents and children refrain from using the area for the safety and wellbeing of all involved. Until such time as the contractor signs off completion of this project, all items should not be used and no liability is accepted, by the Playing Field Management Committee, for any injury sustained. We hope you understand that these safety measures have been put in place for obvious reasons and the temporary inconvenience is for your safety.
If you would like further details on our new playground, please see the full plans on the Pavilion window. We hope you can join us in the opening of the new equipment in due course.
Whatton & Aslockton Playing Field Management Committee
On 20th August 2019, representatives of Proludic UK met with the Management Committee to report on the results of the public consultations regarding play equipment.
Their findings have now being discussed by a Sub Committee group to establish how we proceed with the project. The main focus of those discussions centred on selecting play equipment appropriate for the age groups and the findings of the public consultation.
More news will follow.
On Sunday 14th July 2019, the Cranmer Pre School Committee held a fund raising event on the playing field. The event was well attended and the children took part in running around the a circular course on the playing field.
