Milton Parish Council and Milton Community Centre have been working together to upgrade and refurbish the Sycamores play area. At last, we are pleased to announce that it is open for use. Since the grass around the roundabout still needs to grow a little more this piece will remain shut but will also be open just as soon as the grass grows. Amongst the new equipment is a new wide slide on the bank and refurbishment of some of the older equipment has also been carried out.
The whole project has taken rather longer than anticipated mainly because of supply issues and Covid restrictions. Also midway through the project it was felt the surface needed additional refurbishment and so extra work was required to lay protective grass mats and of course it had to be re-seeded as well.
The cost for this project was shared equally by Milton Parish Council and Milton Community Centre. This sort of thing does not come cheap these days with just over £30,000 being spent on the project. However, we hope that it will give enjoyment to the children of Milton for many years to come.
