Children need play areas
4:52pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Letters
I READ with dismay that a feasibility study is to be carried out on the future of the play area in Barnton.
My fear is that this very precious area will be given to the few for allotments or worse still will be used for housing. My children play on this area almost every day after school and at weekends, as do their friends.
They would be heartbroken to lose this play area.
There are so few areas for children to play on.
Children living on Runcorn Road would have walk to the other side of the village to use the other play areas.
The council put in new equipment into the field two years ago and it has been used by young people to practice penalty taking and other ball games.
Without such play areas young people may just congregate in streets with nothing to do.
I hope that the council will listen to us and re-instate the play equipment – slide, swings and previously a climbing frame.
