Playground Inspection & Maintenance

Annual Inspections
The Play Inspection Company logo

The Parish Council has the playground inspected every year to ensure that it meets all regulations and is Health & Safety approved.

The inspections, which are extremely thorough and take several hours to complete, are usually carried out by The Play Inspection Company, one of the most experienced and respected companies in the play industry.

Gaps are measured, bolts are checked, swings and slides tested and verified as being safe.   Regulations are very tight these days and approval is required for insurance purposes.

The Register of Play Inspectors International (RPII) is the official UK body for accrediting and certificating play inspectors.
