The playground that we funded at the back of The Hut was inspected for safety when it was first created. But in the aftermath of the sad accident to a child in Mile End Park, we decided we should have it re-inspected. That way parents and carers can be sure that our children are safe.
Play consultant, Rob Whewell – recommended by PATH – did the original assesment. He returned a few weeks ago to see how the playground and the equipment is shaping up.
His report gives us a clean bill of health, while detailing items like the springing frog that is showing signs of wear and tear, and needs attention. He tells us how long the climbing tree and bit of equipment are likely to last, and helpfully identifies things that we should just keep an eye on.
