Adventures at Hainault

I have just returned from a wet morning in Hainault Forest Country Park, which was more fun than it sounds...

I joined Mayor of Redbridge, Cllr Lorraine Sladden, and children from local schools for the opening of three adventure playgrounds. Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, to support the concept of play, these three new areas will provide the country park with an exciting new attraction.

Even in the pouring rain, the children found the enthusiasm to enjoy the swings and rope walks. Us adults were a bit more circumspect - but some of us might sneak back for a go, when the sun comes out and the press have gone.

We often complain that we don't get much from the Lottery in Redbridge, so it is good to celebrate when some benefits come our way...
