Heath End recreation ground

Heath End play area is now complete and ready for lots of half term play!

Congratulations and thanks to the Friends of East Woodhay Play Area for raising £7,000 towards the equipment. The parish council were delighted to match their efforts and we hope that the recreation ground now offers a fun, social hub for all those children (and parents!) of Ball Hill, East End and Heath End.
