Rowledge Play Area Design – Voting

News Release
Issued by Waverley Borough Council

Vote For Your Favourite Rowledge Park Design
From stand-up seesaws and basket swings to roundabouts and trampolines, Waverley Borough Council needs your help to decide on the winning design and play equipment as part of the Rowledge Recreation Ground play area refurbishment.
The council will be renovating the play area in spring 2018 and needs as many residents as possible to say what new products they’d like to see in the play area, by taking part in a quick survey.
A consultation was held during July and the council used the results to write a design brief. As a result, three designs by three different play companies were shortlisted. You can now view the designs, vote for your favourite and add any comments by going to:

Please see this police alert for a Bentley Incident

Please be aware of an incident that occurred in the Bentley area whereby a resident was visited by a male claiming to be from Trading Standards.

The male stated that the resident had overpaid for work that had been carried out and was owed a large sum of money.

Approximately 20 minutes later a male called the resident stating that he was working for “Metpol” and said that the resident was owed £32,000 but would need to pay £32,000 in order to release £64,000.
