Tonmawr children’s playground safety queried

Liberal Democrat councillor Des Sparkes is pressing for a long-overdue safety inspection of the children’s playground in Tonmawr. The community council promised last October to send the community’s footpaths officer on a course that would enable him to carry out this function. Four months later, this has still not been done.

Des Sparkes says: “To my knowledge, the playground at Tonmawr has not been inspected for five years. This not only flouts the law, but also the duty of care the Community Council has to the children of Pelenna. I am calling on my fellow county councillor, the member for Pelenna, to join me in impressing upon Pelenna Community Council the seriousness which the County Borough Council attaches to child safety.”
