Work has been completed on the Robert Kingan playground in Bannings Vale, East Saltdean. The refurbished playground was opened by The Town Mayor Councillor Brendon Rossiter on Tuesday 28 May, with children from East Saltdean and Telscombe.
Telscombe Town Council worked with play equipment specialist Sutcliffe Play to update the playground, originally built over 20 years ago.
The £20,000 project has refreshed existing features and seen the installation of new equipment to create a challenging and inclusive play area for children of all ages.
New equipment includes a Pull Up Toddlerzone unit that caters for all abilities and a Dish Roundabout, one of Sutcliffe Play’s most inclusive products. The Dish provides fast dynamic play and the rocking and rotating motion with good body support and security given by the dish shape make it truly inclusive. Also installed are 2 trampolines, Springie Seesaws and swings.
Councillor Brendon Rossiter Mayor of Telscombe and East Saltdean says: “The new-look playground provides the community with an important meeting place for families, and provides children with exciting physical play opportunities.”
The playground was funded by Telscombe Town Council and a £10,000 grant from National Lottery Awards for All.
The Robert Kingan playground is one of three playground being refurbished by Telscombe Town Council and Sutcliffe Play as part of a £112,000 project. Two further playgrounds at Ambleside Avenue, Telscombe Cliffs and Chatsworth Park, Kirby Drive will be opened before the school summer holidays.
