Joe and Kate Salmon sort new play equipment for Moordown Rec

Joe Salmon and Kate Salmon are pleased that the vandalized equipment will soon be replaced at Moordown Rec

Green Party councillors for Moordown Joe Salmon and Kate Salmon have worked with council officers to ensure that new play equipment is installed at Moordown Recreation Ground. Last year there was another arson attack (see photo inset) on new play equipment which had previously been left uninsured by BCP Council.

Joe Salmon said: “Our parks and play areas are at the heart of our community, providing access to nature and outdoor play for hundreds of local families and children. The links with improved mental and physical health are well established, so it’s vital that our parks are well kept and not ignored or neglected.”

Other equipment in the park is also long overdue for refurbishment or replacement, and Kate and Joe continue to make the case that this should be a priority for council funding.
