Play Area - NOW OPEN!!!!

Play Area - NOW OPEN!!!!

Monday 8th July saw the 'Official Opening' of Breedon Play Area. Members of the Parish Council met with Gillian Squires from North West Leicestershire District Council, head teacher Kelly Ellis and some of children from Breedon Primary School. These representatives, together with a number of parish volunteers have all played an important part in making this project happen, from obtaining the funding to selecting the equipment type. More »

The Chairman gave a short speech, prior to the 'cutting of the ribbon' by one of the schoolchildren, giving a special thanks to the sponsors for making this project happen, the Quarry and the Big Lottery in particular – who without their help, this project wouldn't have happened.

A big thank you to the members of the Parish Council, past and present, who lent a hand to make the area ready to open and saw the project through from start to finish.

The children of the primary school have been valuable to this project, their ideas and enthusiasm have made this project worthwhile – we truly hope they enjoy their time playing on all the new equipment. » Less

Breedon Play Area - Update!

Breedon Play Area - Update!

Update...

The flooring was laid on 18th June. The post installation inspection was 24th June and sign off was due to be 25th, however, following the meeting with the contractors Tuesday morning, it was highlighted that further works were needed to the flooring and therefore the play area still remains CLOSED!!! And will do until the area is safe!

The contractors have called this morning explaining that they will be back in Monday to re-mediate the wetpour. More »

Once the contractors have been in on Monday, the area needs to be left 24/48hours.

The Parish Council is doing ALL it can can to complete the project as quickly as possible, but safety is THE main priority! It was hoped that the play area would be opened for the end of June, however, it's likely to be end of next week.

Thank you for reading, Sam Clerk to the Council. » Less

THANK YOU!

THANK YOU!

Thank you to each and everyone that attended, helped and supported the Breedon Summer Sunday event yesterday!

It was a fantastic day and great to see so many of you there.

I will be personally thanking those who helped make the day a success later on, when I have caught up. However, without the support from YOU all, the local residents from our parish and the neighbouring villages it wouldn't have been a success. More »

Many thanks again, from Sam (Clerk to Breedon Parish Council.) and the Parish Council. » Less
