Hughes Way Play Area nearing completion

The new play area at Hughes Way in Uckfield.

The refurbishment of the Hughes Way play area is nearing completion.

New equipment has been installed and is now awaiting a safety check and new turf to replace the ground in between the play areas.

Yesterday, council officials attended to secure the gates to stop access.

Uckfield Town Council took to Facebook with a message following reports of people gaining access.

The message read:

Please be advised Hughes Way Play Area is NOT yet open. Gates to the play area are padlocked and barricades placed across the entrances.

We are awaiting the outcome of a play inspection. Until the results of this have been received and snagging addressed, the site should not be accessed.

Due to the ground works, the site is also very boggy at present whilst we await further turfing.

Many thanks for your patience.
