The Parish Council are very frustrated at the amount of time it is taking for the parts to arrive for the swings at the Gun Park play area, we have been assured that shackles to attach the chains to the top bar will be with us by the end of the week, the handyman will then check they are the right size and we can then order the other missing parts from a different manufacturer.

Unfortunately it has been a process of trial and error to get the correct parts as the original swing manufacturer went out of business many years ago.

While these swing repairs are on-going, meetings are going ahead with 3 different playground suppliers for quotes for new wetpour and 3 new pieces of equipment, it has been arranged that the children of Eastry Primary will be involved in the final decision on which play equipment to go for.
