24 May 2019Do not use the Climbing Frame Welfare Field

Large modern Climbing Frame Welfare Field.


Do not use this piece of equipment


The part of the frame called the giro is very loose. This has been inspected by the company who supplied it but as it requires new parts to be fitted they are unable to fix it until next week. There are notices on the equipment advising people not to use it. Please be extra vigilant of your children in the Field. Thank you
