Residents have been concerned that the gate to the Gatley Rec playground (at the Co-op end) wasn’t closing automatically.
The problem for the Parks people turned out to be that the spring had broken on the gate. Replacing it with one spring wouldn’t have done the job, but two springs would make it too strong, potentially injuring a child.
The solution was to buy a new gate, and Keith has been pressing for that. We’ve now had confirmation from the Council that the new gate has been ordered and should be installed shortly after Christmas – good news for child safety.
