Governors' Field

Goveronors' Field, Woodborough was closed on the evening of 1 July for the installation of the new play equipment - the photograph above shows the very final hours of the old equipment, and the children enjoying the sunshine before the workmen moved in to start the work.

At the time of writing, in spite of torrential rain and other problems, the work is nearly complete - and what a transformation has taken place!

The tired old play equipment has disappeared and been replaced with modern wood based structures which promise to lift the whole look of the centre of the village. Not only has the 'play appeal' of the various item of equipment been raised to a new level, but the number has also been increased.

Hopefully, the park will be open again shortly - we'll keep you informed.

Congratulations to all those involved in the project!

In the meantime watch the slideshow below to see the various stages of construction.
