Following the adoption of the Limpsfield Neighbourhood Plan, one of the projects the Parish Council has been looking into is the creation of a playground to service the north side of the A25/Village area. Please help us by reading the following note and completing a very short questionnaire.
Several sites have been considered (including Glebe Meadow and Stanhopes), but discounted for reasons including land leasing, inadequate parking, lack of refreshment facilities etc.
We think that the best site would be on the safely enclosed, grassed kids play area (formerly a bowling green) to the side of the Royal British Legion Club at Grub Street, by the Oxted & Limpsfield Cricket Club pitch and Limpsfield Infant School.
With a wheelchair / pram accessible enclosed area, lots of parking, proximity to the school, accessibility on foot – both by pavement and through the woods – and availability of tea, coffee, snacks and treats from the Legion’s bar, it presents a viable location for a community playground for children 3 to 11 years.
In consultation with Handmade Places and working with representatives from the British Legion Club Limpsfield, Limpsfield Infant School and parents’ association, Panda Nursery and St Peter’s Church we have come up with possible play equipment to suit the location and limited budget. The playground will largely be funded by grants.
A suitable set-up would include: a Tower, 2 x Platforms, Climbing Wall, Balance Beam, Vertical Scramble Net, Trapeze Rings, V-bridge, Fireman’s Pole, Pull up ramp, Ladder Wall and Slide, PLUS some “springies” for smaller children and an accessible “nest swing” to suit all ages and abilities/disabilities.
To help us decide whether/how we might take this forward, we would be very grateful if you could answer the a few short questions by clicking on the survey link HERE.
