We are reporting the contract is on programme on all critical path operations. The public can now use the play park fully although access is restricted to one entry point, we hope to get these works completed as soon as possible but await decisions. We had primary 4, 5 and 6 children visiting site 2 weeks ago and plan to be able to do this on a regular bases as work progresses.
