Recreation Survey August 2020
Longhope Parish Council are seeking to work with parishioners to ensure a successful future for the Recreation Ground and Pavilion. As part of that process, we would like to ask every household for their thoughts about recreation in Longhope, what facilities they value and what extra facilities they might like to use. Please would you involve all members of your household and join in this conversation by collectively responding to this survey by Friday 5th September 2020. Hard copies of the survey will be circulated shortly – Many thanks in advance for all your ideas and feedback
Reopening the play areas
We are pleased to announce that following our risk assessment and consultation with parents, we are nearly ready to open the 2 playgrounds on the recreation ground.
“Rules of the Playground” have been agreed, in consultation with local parents. Furthermore, Insurers have confirmed we are good to go. We have now received the routine Playground equipment inspection report which will be reviewed at a Recreation Ground meeting on Monday 10th August.
Papers for Recreation Ground meetings are currently posted on the Meetings page of this website.
