Should we install a playground for  Charlton village children?

At the recent annual Parish meeting, a proposal was discussed to install a playground for children aged up to 10 years on land behind the Gardeners Arms, near to the centre of the village. Currently the nearest children’s playgrounds are located at the Sheppey in Cropthorne, adjacent to the Village Hall, which means a walk up the narrow pathway on Church Leys, not really suitable for younger children. 


The Parish Council has commissioned an outline design from noted playground equipment company Wicksteed, which would provide items such as swings, slides, a seesaw, a roundabout and a “springie”, all mounted on impact absorbent surfacing within a fenced area. 


We will shortly be delivering a leaflet to all residents of Charlton asking for your thoughts on this proposal, before we move on to the next stage of the project.


Thank you in anticipation of your feedback
