The Watch House Residents Group arranged a picnic at the Ravens Crescent play area on Saturday 1 April to officially mark the installation of the new play equipment provided by the Parish Council.
The weather was kind and lots of children and parents came along. The children were happy to play on the new swings and climbing tower whilst the grown-ups enjoyed a chat and some lovely cakes.
The Parish Council received a Community Projects Grant from Uttlesford District Council of £3500 towards the cost.
Brad Pearman, local resident, said “I know I will echo the thoughts of many residents when I say that it has been extremely well received and that the children are making very good use out of it already. Not one day goes by without children heading to the playing field and it compliments the football posts perfectly to give some much needed play equipment in the area.” He added “The equipment gets used by local residents, and also some children from the primary school as a treat from their parents when on their way home at the end of the day. Sincere thanks to all concerned”.
Many thanks to Brad and other local residents for organising the day.
