Changing Places toilet to be installed at Worlds End Recreation Ground

Worlds End Recreation Ground plansLast year we held a public consultation so that local parents and children could help us to design a new playground at World’s End Recreation Ground in Burgess Hill. Our plans are now starting to take shape and we know the key features that will part of the new playground.

The new equipment will have exciting play opportunities for children of all abilities and we will be providing a Changing Places Toilet (www.changing-places.org) so families can enjoy their visit for longer and make full use of the new inclusive play area.

The new playground equipment will feature:

- an area for toddlers with swings and a small climbing frame and slide
- a variety of different swings, including a wheelchair accessible swing and a multiperson swing
- a trampoline built into the ground
- a wheelchair accessible roundabout
- a large climbing frame inspired by the tree house designs produced by pupils of Manor Field School

The new playground will be much larger, extending out as far as the basketball hoop. The need for more shade was frequently mentioned during our public consultation so we will be planting lots of trees and adding extra seating.

We will also be laying a path to connect the junction of Manor Road / Janes Lane with the play area and improving the drainage of the football pitches.

The next stage is to enter into discussions with professional playground designers who will produce more detailed plans and visual imagery to give you a better idea of how the new playground will look.

Your Energy SussexCouncils in Sussex have joined together to help local people to pay less for their gas and electricity.

The Your Energy Sussex initiative is led by West Sussex County Council, with support from local District and Borough Councils. There are no dividends to shareholders or bonuses to Directors because Your Energy Sussex is owned by Sussex Councils and, as a ‘not-for-profit’ company. Your Energy Sussex uses surplus income to help local people who are struggling to pay their energy bills.

In addition to providing cheap local energy, Your Energy Sussex invests in renewable energy projects and because the partnership uses local installers this creates investment and job opportunities for people across Sussex.

The latest industry figures show that just 25% of people changed their energy tariff or supplier in the last year. That means 75% of people are likely to be on the most expensive 'standard variable' tariff, paying way over the odds for their energy and could save up to £300 by switching.

We want more people in Mid Sussex to switch and pay less for their energy. Your Energy Sussex offers straightforward and honest advice to customers and energy prices that are always fair and competitive.
