Second public meeting to be held to discuss ill-fated Wisbech playground
A SECOND public meeting is to be held for Wisbech residents to discuss the problems surrounding the ill-fated Waterlees playground.
The event – at the Oasis Centre in Wisbech on Wednesday 15 December at 7.00pm – follows a stormy first meeting on October 11.
At that meeting, officers from Cambridgeshire County Council pledged to act on the concerns of residents, who said they had been tormented by drunken youths who had “taken over” the adventure park.
The �1million playground – funded by the Government’s Play Pathfinder scheme – has been subject to a barrage of vandalism. Two 65-foot barges were attacked by vandals just days after their installation.
The second public meeting will be attended by Gayle Gorman, the Council’s Director of Learning; Cllr Martin Curtis, County Council Cabinet Member for Children, Gill Harrison, Head of Early Years and Childcare; and Project Sponsor Jane Leet.
