Play Area for the Children

Recently, on the Paull Village Hall facebook page, many people have commented about somewhere for the children to play. I thought is was an opportunity to bring the community up to date and get everyone’s view. The Parish Council recently purchased the piece of land shown here which lies between the Lighthouse and the Old Coastguard House. They have set aside £12,000 of funds to develop the land into some form of children’s play area. Much discussion has taken place as to the form it should take as there is an opinion that says putting swings etc on the land will encourage vandalism and misuse. The Parish council would welcome the views of everyone so they can plan the project within the village plan. There are also grants that are available but we do need a clear vision of what is required.

It would therefore be most helpful if people within the community could let us have there views. To do this click on ‘Leave a comment’ at the bottom of this article and have your say. All the views will then be collected and passed to the Parish Council at its next meeting which will be held on 6th September 2012.

This has been mentioned in the Village Hall newsletter and we will continue to update you but you can also read the Parish Council Minutes on the subject by going to their web page by clicking here and clicking on recent minutes.
