Tom Brake To Open Playground

July 4, 2006 4:12 PM

On Sunday July 9th at 12noon, Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, will open the completely re-vamped Orchard Avenue Recreation Ground playground.

The playground had been threatened with closure due to vandalism and the ever-increasing costs of the replacement and repairs to the play equipment.

Mr. Brake worked with local resident Carolyn Morris, lead councillor for the environment, Colin Hall, ward councillors Paddy Kane and Margaret Court and the council's park's team to support the community's bid for new play facilities, including facilities for disabled children.

Caroline Morris's group helped to choose the new park design and to ensure facilities such as a special roundabout, a specially adapted swing, a big climbing frame and a slide, both of which are wide enough for carers to accompany children.

Commenting on this achievement, Mr Brake says, "This really shows that if people want something badly enough, by working together and getting organised they can achieve their dreams."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
