Tamar Close Park in Callington has had new equipment installed and is now open to the public. 

A spokesperson from Callington Town Council said: “Following the annual inspection of play equipment by an independent contractor, it was reported that the play equipment in Tamar Close was unsafe.  The outside services committee immediately closed off the equipment and quotes were sought for replacing the equipment.  The new equipment has now been installed and the park is once again open for youngsters to use.” 

The official opening of the park took place on Thursday, September 27, by deputy Portreeve Steve Pound who was ably assisted by his youngest son Winston, who had been eagerly awaiting the opening of the equipment. 

“There was a good turnout despite the weather and the youngsters were all eager to play on the equipment and the consensus of opinion was ‘brilliant’.” 

“There is still some work to be done in the park with clearing the area and replacing the fencing, which will be carried out during the autumn months.”
