Plaxtol Spoute Recreation ground has recently had an inspection and it was noted that the equipment is tired and needs to be replaced. We have been looking into various options and have narrowed it down, trying to keep in mind that the climbing frame is much loved by the kids.
As a first step we are looking to replace the existing climbing frame and swings with newer and safer equipment. Feedback from local parents suggests that additional play equipment in the spoute would be welcomed. We are looking into options that will appeal to a wider age range. A small cycle track is still being investigated for the site; we are in the process of obtaining quotes.
Thank you to H&E Tree Services who have already done a great job clearing out the surrounding area including the central wooded area which is now great for den making and tree climbing.
To get the ball rolling here are the 2 options available for us to choose from. Please make your selection by emailing Spouterecreation@gmail.com or comment below.
Any questions don’t hesitate to contact me at the Spoute email. The cut off for selection is the end of Feb, after which fundraising begins so anyone who would like to help move things along please get in touch, it would be greatly appreciated, especially since this will benefit the whole village.
