Recreation Ground
- Mark (7th Jul 2019 @ 17:19:08)

It’s great to have the overhaul and new soft tarmac in the two play areas but I thought something new was being installed in the second area. The zip wire is great but the climbing frame and the tyre swing (both of which my children loved) have gone. Hoping the latter is to return as the tarmac is there. Haslemere have some amazing things in the weyhill Park I had hoped we might get something like that.

Does anyone know if there are more plans?

Lets go retro and get a witches hat back. It's been re-designed not as good but those Health and Safety dumpties ruin everything.

I’d like to see that unused lump of metal in the back rec removed and returned to a nice peaceful lawn or a flowerbed.

I know it’s never going to happen, some child with wheels will have a mum with a mate in the council and a good £100,000 will eventually be spanked on a new lump of metal for 3 kids to use and 49 idiots to smash up.

Why not start a fund-raising campaign, specifically for children's playground equipment? You could get "Play England" involved and all sorts of other charities.

The only reason I suggest this is because we all know how councils have had funding slashed, so children's play areas won't be a priority. It could be a lovely community-building campaign!

What is a "witch's hat" in this context please?

Actually just to clarify Nic's point - although Councils have suffered funding cuts, parish councils are the one tier of local authority who are not yet subject to funding capping

They do have the ability to raise their precept to fund projects exactly like this - that is if it is justifiable and is something that residents are actually keen to see.

I would imagine the parish council will start thinking about their budget around September - why don't you send your request to them for consideration?

As for any young people a Witches Hat is a kids ride a cross between and swing and a roundabout. Highly dangerous and great fun, got banned in the late 1970's and were removed from all playgrounds, had one in Liphook.

We could look at the merit of registering a local charity purely for Liphookers to fund kids stuff and more. Contributions may then attract tax relief through Gift Aid programme, meaning that the bulk of the benefits to Liphook and its people, would be funded by HMRC.

Obviously we would need three pillars of the community with the nuclear codes to act in unison in order to release any funds. (So no central bankers need apply) LOL!
