Learie Constantine open space
The Learie Constantine open space is open at last and is looking good! All the safety issues have been dealt with. There are some other issues to take up with officers but it is good that children will have access to all the interesting play equipment at last. This is my first picture of a mum and child enjoying the bucket swing. Looking back at records, I first raised the problem of the site in 2005 when I asked for the site to be boarded up to stop the vandalism and anti-social behaviour that was troubling neighbours. From then on, there were continual requests to Parks to refurbish the site for play and recreation. It was only when the Labour government provided "Playbuilder" funds in 2009 that it was possible to go ahead. So a very long haul, but worth it!
