Old Adventure Playground Consultation

Consultation on the future of the old wooden adventure playground site in Lordship Rec. Meeting at Lordship Hub at 3.30pm on Sunday April 14th after the Friends of Lordship Rec Meeting. All welcome with your ideas and suggestions. This meeting is run by the Lordship Sports and Activities Consortium (LSAC) and Friends of Lordship Rec and is just the beginning of forming a plan for the area that suits as many people as possible. Funding will then have to be found to carry out the finally agreed and designed plan, so it is no quick solution. Please come along and be a part of it.
