Playground on Benenden Recreation Field

BENENDEN VILLAGE TRUST REGRETS THAT IDEN GREEN PLAYGROUND IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

 

The RoSPA Health and Safety inspection which was due to take place in July has been delayed and the Trust cannot take responsibility for the playground’s use until it has received the inspector’s report.

 

The Trust will be looking at what repairs, if any, can be undertaken in the short term to ensure that the equipment is safe to use, while also developing its plans for a full refurbishment of the playground.

 

If you ignore this notice and use the playground

you do so at your own risk.

 

Thank you for your co-operation and patience.
