At the request of WHPC councillors East Devon District Council conducted a survey of children in West Hill to identify what new piece of equipment they would like to have in the playpark. Funding is available from Section 106 monies for community facilities in the village.
The preferred choice of the youngest children was a slide and the 5-11 age group suggested either a climbing frame, bouncing equipment or a slide. EDDC have recommended installing a slide with a climbing frame access to suit both age groups. WHPC will now seek tenders for this piece of equipment and if approved by councillors it should be in place by next spring, dependent on lead times and weather conditions.
A big thank you to all those children who took part in the survey.
