The sand-pit in the wet play area has been removed.
Sand and water do not mix well, except by the sea and there have been ongoing problems from sand getting into the plumbing for the water sprays, which have been expensive to fix and have put the wet play area out of action many times.
We had hoped it might be possible to have a new fountain that children could run through installed where the sand used to be but this would involve a very expensive and lengthy modification, so was out of the question. A pity but the grass is nice for sunbathing.
The sand at the Playground will stay!
