Since Thames Water first told us about the major works on Tiverton Green we have been talking to them about the possibility of making a ‘legacy’ contribution to the community. We asked for improvements to the kids playground area (not the old tennis court area, which is being separately improved, but the original playground with swings and zipwire).
We’re delighted to say that today we had confirmation of a £14,800 payment, which Brent Parks will now use to install new play equipment and picnic benches, but also to paint the rather battered and tired railings around the playground. Some work has already begun, and the rest will be weather dependent but expect to see more changes soon.
This money is in addition to the utility’s obligation to restore the grass, trees and paths to their former selves, when the site is vacated in or before late March 2015.
Many thanks for Thames Water, Optimise and Brent Council’s Parks and Leisure Service.
