There have been a number of queries regarding the missing tennis net on the multi use games area. The Parish Council has removed the net due to damage which has resulted in the cable being cut. Currently, a replacement cable is being sourced. The net and winding mechanism have been damaged on several occasions this year resulting in the Parish Council spending several hundred pounds on the required repairs. Unfortunately, some users of the games area continue to damage the equipment due to unauthorised removal of the net or incorrect operation.
The net will be re-installed in due course but the Parish Council asks that users of the games area, do not attempt to remove the net or interfere with the winding mechanism. The Council will consider introducing a procedure which will allow the net to be installed/removed. Should the damage continue, the Council may have to remove the net permanently--something members would prefer not to do.
