When we build a new community centre up at The Moor, we will first of all need to move and replace the current playground to another space on the playing fields. We’re working towards a new playground in 2021/22 and community centre for 2022/2023. This might seem like a long way away but there’s lots of plans and thinking to get in place.
We had originally planned to hold a series of consultation meetings with children and parents but the Covid 19 pandemic meant this just wasn’t possible. So instead a short questionnaire was distributed in July to local organisations via the Hawkhurst Scouts. We received some really useful replies which have now been analysed – and you can see the report below. We are currently working on a design brief for the new playground.
