Down Cllr Cadogan Enright has welcomed the installation of seating at the children’s play park in the Westlands estate Crossgar, so that adults will now have somewhere to sit when supervising their children.

The Green Party Councillor said, “Whilst canvassing in the Westlands Estate back in March I was told by parents and grandparents in the area that there was nowhere for them to sit when they brought their children to play on the swings. This was causing difficulties for older people and those who have difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time. The local residents asked me to raise this matter at Council.”

“Having heard the concerns of the local people I brought the problem to the attention of the Down District Council and I’m delighted to say that new seating has now been installed at the Westlands Estate Playpark.”

Cllr Enright concluded, “I would like to thank the hard work of Mark Bridges of Down District Council for installing the seating and for his work in various other areas.”
