pleased with new one in Home End.
BISHOPS CLYST PARISH COUNCIL
Play Area – Cllr Gibbs – Plymouth Brethren has come up with a solution to fix the donated bench to the existing concrete base using a resin. RoSPA inspection is due next month, Cllr Gibbs feared that they would mark down the play area’s existing springer equipment and asked the Clerk if it was worthwhile making contact with them informing them of the imminent replacements. The Clerk said that the report would be based on the equipment that is in place and being used at this time so felt that getting in contact would not be beneficial. The gate at the top end of the play area needs to be padlocked closed so prevent children from playing with it and leaving it open.
