Haddenham Parish Council is pleased to announce that a new children's slide has now been installed in Banks Park. This has been located in a position closer to the end of the Scout and Guide Centre, and further away from the road than the old slide's placement.

The choice of the slide was based directly on the results of a survey of local parents, conducted in early October last year. Of the various designs offered (see here) the clear winner was the "Redbrook Multi-Play", constructed all in metal. Youngsters can gain access to the platform via two routes: a sloping ladder or a "serpent" climbing frame. The deck height is 1.2m.

Early adopters of the slide (see photographs) were clearly delighted with the new play facilities, and give it a big thumbs up!

Their mum was also impressed, and was especially pleased about the soft landing surface that has been installed with the slide, providing a safe tumble zone should the odd spill occur.

So, full marks to the Parish Council.
