Bucklesham resident, Lelayla Baker, lobbied the Parish Council to ask for a Nest Swing for the Playing Field, and we are very pleased to report that it has now been installed in the Play Area.

Lelayla approached the Council last year, explaining that there were no facilities for children with disabilities. She asked the Council to install a Nest Swing that could be used by children who had difficulties in sitting upright in the standard swings. We were very happy to oblige such a polite and proactive young resident.

The Nest Swing was purchased with grants from Cllr Richard Kerry and Cllr Mick Richardson from their Enabling Communities Budget. The remainder of the money came from the Community Infrastructure Levy, paid to the Parish Council from new builds in the Parish.

We hope the swing will be enjoyed by many - all thanks to Lelayla!
