ST. MARY’S PLAYING FIELD - PICNIC BENCHES TO BE REPAIRED
In September Steeple Ashton Parish Council’s ‘Annual Play Area Safety Inspection Report’, carried out by an independent, authorised company, included comments about the two picnic benches at St Mary's playing field, which were both damaged and were not fixed to the ground. The Parish Council is responsible for their maintenance and safety aspects. The report recommended that the benches should be repaired and moved away from any play equipment to a place of safety and "fixed" into the ground within the field. As a result, the Parish Council has arranged for both picnic benches to be removed and stored in a safe place until the repairs are complete. Once this has been done the benches will be returned to the playing field and fixed away from any play equipment. The Parish Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
