Hello from the Include Us team!
I’m sure it has been a busy old month for you all getting ready for Christmas. Does it seem to come around quicker every year – hohoho?

Despite being rained off for our Christmas event this year the park is looking lovely after our little Xmas Elves have been busy with the tinsel!

Thank you to all the fantastic parents and children who have taken the time to add a little bit of Christmas cheer to the park – it looks amazing!

We have been busy ourselves over the past few weeks putting the finishing touches to our Tender which goes out soon to local companies so that they can bid to undertake the work to transform the park.

With a big project such as this you won’t be surprised to hear that our timescales have slipped a bit!

What we can tell you with some certainty is that the work will be finished in time for the school summer holidays next year!

So, we made the decision to temporarily remove the countdown from our website until we know the date that the build will start.

We’ll think about putting it back up once we have settled on another date for the park opening.

2019 is going to be such an exciting time for us all and we look forward to sharing our news with you once we’ve appointed a contractor and have a date to start.

In the meantime, the Include Us team would like to thank you for all your support and wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas and peaceful New Year x
