New half pipe for Turners Hill playground

Turners Hill half-pipeA half-pipe mini ramp, a new 2.5m tall timber climbing frame and a wheelchair accessible roundabout will be installed at Turner's Hill Recreation Ground play area this winter.

We consulted with local residents about what type of new equipment they would like to see installed at the park. We had a total of 53 responses and the vast majority of people said they would like the park to be more inclusive and accessible for all.

As part of the improvement works we'll be removing the bark pit and laying a smooth path to the existing basket swing so it is easier to access for children in wheelchairs. We'll also be adapting the existing ship, so children with limited mobility and toddlers can access it without using the scramble nets or passing under the low bridge.

Although most legal restrictions have been lifted and many people have been vaccinated, Coronavirus has not gone away and remains a serious health risk. It is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated, so it remains important we all take steps to protect each other. 

COVID-19 will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future, so we need to learn to live with it and manage the risk to ourselves and others. Everyone must continue to get a test if you develop COVID-19 symptoms, even if your symptoms are mild, and isolate if you test positive or are told to do so by NHS Test and Trace. You can help to protect yourself and others by limiting the number of people you socialise with, keeping your distance, meeting outside or letting fresh air in.

If you have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine, you should get vaccinated because it is a safe and effective way to obtain the best protection against COVID-19.
