Henhayes Recreation Ground

Crewkerne Town Council would like to apologise to residents and visitors that the playground in Henhayes Recreation Ground has been closed for so long. Various issues have arisen which have prevented the progress of this project including the withdrawal of one of the principal contractors, the need to ensure that the ground settles properly before installing equipment and poor weather conditions in the early stages of the project.

The playground will be completed in 2 phases. Installation of the new footpath is imminent and once finished the existing equipment such as the springies and train will be re-installed together with a new junior multi-play unit. The existing equipment will be repainted and all safety surfaces replaced. This should mean that the first part of the playground can be re-opened in May.

The extended area, where there has been extensive groundworks, will be reseeded shortly and will need time to establish before two new large items of play equipment can be installed

Although the delay is most regrettable the Council hopes that the completed project will be all the better for waiting and ensuring it is done properly.
