Play Area Update

We have been contacted by our contractors who are installing the new play equipment, who are going to remove and lower all levels on Laverock Hall Play Area on 14th August 2017. This work will take approximately a week and a half to complete. Once this work has been completed they will then move onto the Lindsay Avenue Play Area to remove all the old play equipment and reinstall the new equipment, the work will begin week commencing the 28 August, and will then return to Laverock Hall Play Area to do the same. This work will hopefully be done with minimum disruption.
