Improvements to Red House Road Play area in East Brent


The play area located near to Red House Road in East Brent is set for improvements costing £14,889. 14/11/18

The play area has proved very popular since the last refurbishment took place in 2013 which consisted of a new climbing frame, roundabout and springer. Further investment will commence next month where a basket swing, flat swing and parent and child swing with safety surfacing will be installed. A new section of steel galvanised fencing and hydraulic gate will also be provided as part of the project. Works are expected to begin week commencing Monday 3rd December and last approximately three weeks, subject to favourable weather conditions.

Scott Mason, Parks Development Team Leader said "Basket swings are great for users of all ages and can hold multiple people at any one time, increasing the play value available. A flat swing is a traditional junior swing which always proves popular in any play area. The new parent and child seat will be the third of this type installed within Sedgemoor. The seat promotes interaction and communication between generations during play. It allows an adult or older child to swing face-to-face with the toddler which enhances positive interaction whilst of course, having fun!"

Bill Walker, Chairman of East Brent Parish Council said "East Brent Parish Council is very pleased that through working closely with Sedgemoor District Council it will now be possible to make further improvements to this well used play area.  We would like to thank the team at Sedgemoor working on this project for their efforts to enable the best options being made available with the resources available.  We look forward to enabling children to enjoy this park area even more for the coming years.

This project has been funded by Sedgemoor District Council, East Brent Parish Council and developer contributions.
