Brixworth Parish Council is excited to announce that after many months, and indeed COVID-induced years, the first stage of the new children’s play area will begin in the first week of the new year. The contract was awarded to Kompan, ‘the world’s No. 1 playground equipment supplier’. Weather and pandemic permitting, it is hoped that the new play area will be ready to use by spring 2022. Keiron Dowson, Kompan’s Contracts Manager, said ‘I’m very excited about this project; the materials which we are using are sympathetic to Brixworth’s rural environment and together with the new trees and the wildflower planting, I am confident that the residents will be very happy’.
