Hurstpierpoint and Sayers Common Parish Council was delighted to open their new and extended play area on south Avenue Recreation Ground in Hurstpierpoint.

The new equipment includes a large rope climbing pyramid, a rock-climbing module, and a ground level trampoline. The official opening took place on Tuesday August 16 by council chairman Stephen Hand and councillor Julia Shorrocks.

Around 30 children with parents and grandparents joined the celebration.

The contractor was Kompan and the scheme was funded by housebuilder developer contributions following the requirements set out in the parish council’s Neighbourhood Plan approved by residents last year.
