The long awaited natural play area at Beesmoor Road is finally officially open for you and your family to enjoy.

Kate Colechin, Member of the Beesmoor Road Playing Field Management Committee, has said the following about the new equipment:

“The wait is over and the play area at Beesmoor Road Playing Fields is open! Children and families have been enjoying the new play area during the summer holidays. Our brief was to install a creative and imaginative space for children to play. The children’s ideas during the ‘Designing for Real’ workshop, facilitated by Touchwood back in 2016 have been developed to create the new play area that we have today. We have had significant grants from a number of organisations including Frampton Cotterell Parish Council have and we are very grateful for everyone’s support.

To finish the final phase the play area will close in the autumn 2019 so that the basket swing, slide from the tower structure and the wooden fence in between the playing field and the play area can be installed.

The very final item to be installed will be the willow tunnel (subject to grant funding). This will be installed as part of a community workshop in February 2020 (similar to the den frame workshops in July). Over 80 children and their families came to the den frame workshops at the start of the summer holidays and enjoyed helping to create part of their play area.

The new play area and playing fields are looked after by Beesmoor Road Playing Fields Management Committee, which is made up of local volunteers. We are always looking for people to join us so that we spread the workload, get things done a bit faster and achieve more. Please contact us to find out what’s involved:
