Community Park - Official Reopening

A picnic in the Park! Plenty of picknickers of all ages came to see the grand opening of Langham’s Community Park on Saturday July 24th, when a big red ribbon bow was pulled apart by 10 year-old Lydia Duckering at one end, and Langham resident Min Burdett at the other.

The newly refurbished Community Park is so named because it now really does have something for everyone in the community: from a separate play area for small children, to a zipwire, a MUGA for 8 different games including football and basket-ball, exercise equipment for the more mature, and much more. And there are new picnic tables, kindly provided by Mick Appleby Racing Ltd., and even a fenced off dog zone for canine friends while their owners play or exercise.

Financed by a generous grant of £55,000 from the FCC Communities Foundation, together with Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL)funding from Langham Parish Council, who organised the project, the Park’s new equipment (which adds to existing equipment organised by previous LPC members), and its installation was carried out by playground equipment manufacturer HAGS UK.
