Moller Ring Play, Crawshawbooth

Moller Ring Play, Crawshawbooth

22.05.2024

The play area has been open for a few weeks now, and the amazing gardening group from Crawshawbooth Primary School helped us with the finishing touches today. The children popped in hundreds of plug plants that will bloom over the summer. The weather was really wet and soggy, but they stayed until every plant was in. They did a really wonderful job, and we couldn’t have got it done without their help. Thank you! πŸŒΊπŸ‘β˜”

Although much of the work at Moller ring is complete, we’ve popped some signs up asking people to keep off the play area for a little while – just until the turf establishes.

We’ll let you know as soon as the site if fully open!

The contractors at Moller Ring are hoping to finish most of their work on site next week – which is great news! However, we need to keep the site closed for a further few weeks to let the turf establish and organise some finishing touches. Here’s how it looks at the moment… πŸ˜€

Since our last update, the team at Moller Ring have managed to get some tarmac on to the paths, and the seating and sand filled carpet has been installed too. In spite of the rain, the team have continued to work really hard and it’s all still moving forwards. Hoping it’ll all come together nicely over the next few weeks!
