In light of stubbornly high COVID-19 rates in Redditch I supported a decision by Redditch Borough Council to delay the opening of the new playground at Arrow Valley Country Park for a couple of weeks.

Unfortunately the bureaucratic wheels have not turned as quickly as I would have liked in regards to the removal of the fencing surrounding the playground now that the rates in Redditch are looking much better.

I have asked for the removal of the fencing by the council’s contractors as quickly as they are able to do it. The new playground and amphitheatre must open as soon as possible.
