PROPOSED NEW PLAY AREA ON HARDWICK STREET RECREATION GROUND
Langwith Parish Council is proposing to establish a new play area on the Hardwick Street Rec ground. Rhubarb Farm has offered to support the Parish Council with fund-raising contacts and ideas. The Parish Council plans to hold some consultation events so that children and parents can give their suggestions and ideas for the type of equipment and facilities in a play area. Sadly, this is not being done through social media, which means it won't reach many people. Rhubarb Farm has prepared a statement about the play area, to help the process, but anyone interested should contact the Parish Council in the Village Hall (Tel. 01623-746-498 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org ) to find out details of meetings, and to send in comments and suggestions. The Parish Council has a website, http://www.langwithparishcouncil.gov.uk , but there is nothing on this website about the play area proposals. Rhubarb Farm feels that as many people as might want to should be able to have a say on these proposals and it needs social media to spread the message that if you want a say, you had better raise your voice. Please share this post, especially with people who live around Devonshire Drive.
