New play park in Hemswell Cliff

Residents and families living at Hemswell Cliff now have access to a newly-refurbished play park, as part of a continued drive to re-invest in the local area.

West Lindsey District Council, along with Hemswell Resident Company, have been helping home owners in the Hemswell Cliff estate, re-invest part of their service charges back into the area for a number of years, to continue to improve the area for all.  The efforts really are showing a difference!

Ward Councillor for the area, Cllr Paul Howitt-Cowan, said: “For me, this redeveloped park space demonstrates two things. First, it demonstrates the continued commitment to reinvest in the local area and secondly, it demonstrates the support that the Council and local partners continue to give Hemswell Cliff. It has been fantastic to hear that local school children have already been making the most of the new play space!”

Head Teacher at Hemswell Cliff Primary School Mrs Angie Waplington, confirmed that local children have already been making the most out of the fun, new facilities on offer.

The Head said: “As well as the fantastic outdoor play equipment they can use at school, it is wonderful that our children can now access high-quality play equipment out of school hours too. The children love the new equipment, and the park is well used. I know the children would like to say a big “thank you” to WLDC and HRC- the park is now a much safer and welcoming space for them to meet up with their friends and have fun.”

Senior Communities Officer at West Lindsey District Council, Shayleen Towns, has welcomed the new facilities in the area and is delighted that the council have helped contribute to such a cause.

She said: “As a Council we are supporting Hemswell Cliff achieve the best it can, as we do with other areas that need help. Local home owners are being helped to make a difference here and the results of their efforts are really coming through.”

Volunteers for the Hemswell Resident Company have been working alongside the council to support local residents at Hemswell Cliff via re-investment, for the past few years. This project is an example of the types of projects that have been able to come to life as a result of collaborative work between partners.

Volunteer for the Hemswell Resident Company, Tracy Williams, added: “I have enjoyed volunteering my time as director to help improve Hemswell Cliff. The monies for any improvement has come directly from the 201 homeowners on the estate; this is part of the service charge as we are not adopted by the council. The partnership with having the council, as are management agent, has been fantastic and really helping to maximise the outcomes of any work carried out on the area.”

In 2018, Hemswell Cliff recorded their lowest ASB figures in years, thanks to a continued partnership drive to turn-things around in the area with local organisations, including Lincolnshire Police.

West Lindsey Community Policing Inspector, Gary Brockie, said: “Our local policing team works closely with the council to reduce incidents of ASB and the negative impact this can have on our communities, and we wholeheartedly support the actions being taken to improve facilities for local residents. Play areas like this provide young people with positive opportunity to exercise and socialise in safe environments and also provide support for parents.”
