A roadshow was held to ask residents what play equipment they would like to see in Spider Park in Walsoken yesterday afternoon ... but barely anyone turned up.
Organiser Councillor Dave Patrick says, having spoken to Fenland District Council, he is still confident the park on Jasmine Close will get new equipment.
But Cllr Patrick, who alongside FDC’s horticultural officer Kevin Wilkins also leafleted homes around the park area, is “disappointed” that the people of Walsoken didn’t come out to support the cause.
He said: “Talking to Bob Ollier (FDC parks and open spaces manager), I’m sure there will be some play equipment for Walsoken but I’m so disappointed that with all the work that’s been put in – I’ve been badgering FDC for years about this – nobody could be bothered to turn up.
“I know it was cold and children were at school but that doesn’t stop parents from coming along.

“At the end of the day, people say they want things but they really need to put in the effort to show they want things.”
A FDC spokesman said: “Some people have been asking for new play equipment in the park so the idea was to go along with pictures of different types of equipment and see which types people would like if we can secure external funding.”
