Kirby Rise Play Area

11 January 2022

We are delighted that the new play equipment is currently being installed on the
Kirby Rise green.  A full ROSPA Health & Safety inspection will need to be carried
out on the new play equipment before it is safe to use.  This should take place on
Friday 14th January 2022.

Highways Assurance is very kindly providing the fencing of the new play area and
the Parish Council express their thanks for this generous donation.
£2000.00 has recently been received from BMSDC Cllr John Whitehead and
Cllr Tim Passmore from their Locality Budget towards the new equipment. 
A Big Thank You to them.
