New Play Area
Official Opening
Saturday 1st November at 11:30am




New play equipment recently installed at West Tytherley’s Recreation Ground includes an exciting zip wire and a number of other items of equipment to entertain and exercise local children.


Funds donated by generous village residents, and grants provided by Viridor Credits, The Hills Group, Test Valley Borough Council and Hampshire Playing Fields Association have allowed West Tytherley and Frenchmoor Parish Council to achieve their ambition of providing modern recreation facilities for young village residents and visitors.


The new equipment was installed in August by a local company, Vita Play Ltd, of Winchester, and will be opened officially at 11.30am on Saturday 1st November jointly by the Mayor of Test Valley, Councillor Jan Lovell, and a representative of pupils of our Primary School.
