  • BRUCE WALK PLAY AREA

    Thanks to RBWM staff for fixing the see- saw as it was not looking too great! I have now secured extra funding for inclusive swings in Royal Borough play parks. Council staff will be looking at all RBWM play parks to see if they are suitable for inclusive swings. Bruce Walk will be one of…

  • CASTLE FARM CARAVAN PARK

    I have met with Radian recently to discuss the future of the Castle Farm mobile home site off Tinkers Lane.
