The opening was the final stage in a long process, which began two years ago when the parish council was asked to look into the possibility of a small play provision on the Goulburn Green. A public meeting was held in September 2015 followed by a village wide-vote, which was resoundingly in favour of the proposal. A deed of variation permitting the equipment to be sited on the green was approved by Mole Valley’s Development and Control committee in January this year, and grant applications for play provision funding from Mole Valley in April.
The wooden swing and slide unit from play equipment specialists eibe were finally installed at the beginning of June. As well as grant funding the parish council is also grateful for a contribution from the Betchworth and Buckland Society. Councillor Julie Hardy commented that “we hope that this play equipment will be enjoyed by children in the village for many years to come.”
