Upcoming Play Areas Community Workshops

Community Groups, and anyone wishing to contribute to discussions about the future sustainability of play areas in their locality, are invited to attend a Play Areas Community Workshop.

The Sports Development Services team are organising workshops during the period 16th - 27th March, 2015, covering each Ward of the Western Isles to discuss the current issues surrounding play areas.

Those in attendance will be given a brief introduction to the different aspects of the play areas in their ward which need to be addressed in order to ensure that these areas are well used and fit for purpose. The objectives of the workshops are to:

· Explain the requirement to rationalise play areas

· Explain the difficulties in sustaining the current number of play areas

· Rationalisation in partnership with the community sessions

We welcome all members of the public to attend these workshops as all community feedback would be greatly appreciated. All community groups will be invited to attend the events as well as local councillors.
