Work to improve Kilgetty Play Park continues with a new fence and gates installed at the facility, local councillors have heard.

Cllr Jerry Long told fellow members of Kilgetty and Begelly Community Council at their recent meeting that next up is a move to draw up the grant applications.

The Playground was closed last year in order for the play equipment to be removed as many of the items were no longer suitable for repair.

“We should also contact three companies and get quotes to install say three or four pieces of equipment that we can afford and also ask for a plan for the whole playground,” he remarked.

“As we have possibly £45k, which includes possible funding, the fundraising fete and event at the Begelly Arms, the project will be done in phases, and we need the chosen company to agree to this.”

The Clerk reported that locks had been purchased and that all three gates will be locked, with the snagging completed by the contractor. Cllr Wyatt will contact the landscaping company to complete groundwork.

The previous tubed slide is to be delivered to the park for refurbishment.

Cllr Adams requested that the Play Park and Finance Task and Finish groups meet to set out Business plan for the funding application.
