Improvements are child’s play

An ongoing programme of improvements to play areas is helping to make life more fun for children across the borough.

Work to install a brand new play tower at Nursery Close play area, Sheerness is finishing in time for Easter.

The equipment includes a slide, fireman’s pole, climbing wall – and a lookout tower, so children can keep an eye on their parents!

This is the first phase of improvement planned for the park, with new bins and refurbishment of the other equipment to follow in the next 12 months.

The play area at the historic castle site in Queenborough has also been updated, with Queenborough town council funding works to provide more equipment suitable for younger children. A new swing and slide unit, surrounded by safe, soft surfacing, have been installed.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member for environment and rural affairs, said:

"We’re committed to keeping Swale’s popular play areas safe, fun and accessible for local children.

"Active play is so important for our children’s health and wellbeing, so it’s really wonderful to see these improvements being made."

The next project in our schedule of improvements work will see the Windermere play area in Faversham refurbished early in the summer. This will be followed by works to improve play areas in both Minster and Milton later in the summer.

This is the first phase with new bins and refurbishment of the other equipment to follow in the next 12 months.
