Following the successful installation of the new equipment for younger children at the Bridle Road Play Area the Town Council is now looking at S106 funding for further facilities for the older age group at the site. The Town Council would like to enhance the area to cater for all family members to use once lock down is lifted. Bridle Road Open Space is already a lovely area for families to visit but it could be even better! More information to follow asap.
