Worle park set for new equipment next year
Replacement play equipment at a Worle park will finally be installed next year.
Castle Batch play area in Bishop Avenue had its roundabout set on fire by vandals, its swing set removed due to damage and a bin stolen.
Weston Town Council is responsible for providing equipment for its play area and Cllr Catherine Gibbons proposed a motion at a tourism and leisure meeting on Monday for the authority to replace the damaged and stolen items.
She also called for an effective planned maintenance programme to be put in place, which was unanimously supported.
Councillors agreed to install new facilities in 2019, subject to overspend, as the committee is not in budget.
