Although it has taken a while and many hurdles to overcome the Shapinsay Play and Recreation Park will shortly be refurbished. Work will start at the beginning of September to install drainage and extend the Play Park area. Then a team from Wicksteed will be installing some new equipment and grass matting. The aim is to give the youngsters on Shapinsay an area for all ages to play in.
This project was started with Community fundraising and the remainder of funds have been gathered together to enable us to make the Play Park a nicer environment for residents and visitors to the island.
Updates and pictures as work progresses will be posted to the new Shapinsay Blog Website (http://shapinsay.weebly.com/). The site can be accessed also by clicking here.
