Sedgemoor District Council is delighted to announce that Crosses Pen play area, next to Manor Gardens in Burnham on Sea will see the next phase of investment begin on 29th March with works expected to last 3 days, subject to favourable weather conditions. A new play train with carriages, ticket office play panel and frog spring rocker will be installed in place of the old equivalent items. A new rubber safety surface and lookalike track for the train will also be provided. The majority of the play area will remain open for use during the construction period.
The upgrade, costing £9,995, has been part funded by Sedgemoor District Council’s Parks budget and developer contributions ring-fenced for play area enhancements.
A Sedgemoor spokesperson said, “Investment in play is very important to Sedgemoor District Council, children and young people benefit greatly from having a variety of play and sport facilities to explore with their peers and such equipment helps to ensure they lead an active and creative lifestyle”.
