Today I was upset to see significant damage to the safety mat/tiles that were installed beneath the swings at the playground on Sunny Bank Road, next to the Community Centre. Almost a third of the safety mats have been ripped up and left strewn all over the park. I have reported this to Bury Council but in the meantime I would recommend that local residents do not use the equipment until the council have repaired the flooring.
I anticipate this may be some time, but I will ensure that the Council does not forget about the playground and will check in with them regularly.
If anyone knows who might have vandalised the safety mats, I would encourage them to contact the Police on telephone number 101.
