Children in a Suffolk village are set to benefit from new play equipment – but their requests for a “shark infested swimming pool” have been turned down.
Wickham Market Parish Council agreed at its meeting on Monday to buy a new zip-wire and multi-use games area (MUGA) for children in the village after seeking views on what equipment young people would prefer.
Councillor Liz Quickenden, who is also a child-minder, had visited Wickham Market Primary School to ask the various year groups for their preferences
Along with the requests for the zip-wire and MUGA, she said one pupil had suggested the zip-wire should go over a “shark-infested swimming pool”.
Councillors agreed to spend up to £30,000 on the two new items – with the funding coming from section 106 contributions paid by developers who had built new homes in the village.
