NBC have removed the slide from the play area in the Country Park, because the mound into which it was built has deteriorated so badly.
This was due to wear and tear, and also some vandalism, as some individuals had started digging underneath the slide. It was a purpose-built mound but had never really stood up to the job, so NBC made the decision to remove the whole thing and replace it with a slide of different design.
The new slide has been ordered (we think it will be like the one pictured above) and will not be too long before it is installed. We will keep you informed.
