We’ve been making sure our play area is in good shape.
The swinging log needed a bit of maintenance, as some of the links were getting quite worn. Today our Chair, Andy Rackham, (who is a fine builder in his day job) is doing the repairs, replacing the links, shortening the chains a little, and tidying up one of the uprights.
We are also planning to replace the balance beams (two horizontal logs), as the central upright on them has now deteriorated, although it is still solid. We have applied to Diss Town Council for some funds for a replacement. We are planning to get some ‘monkey bars’, aimed at somewhat older children, where you swing across hanging from your hands. We will let you know if we get the funds.
