All toddlers are advised that the “cradle seats” on the swings at Wilstone and Long Marston are to be replaced shortly.

The rubber material they are made from is deteriorating, and although they are perfectly safe, they are leaving black marks on users’ clothing. Intending users should in the meantime consider wearing old trousers to avoid incurring parental wrath. It would be a helpful public service if readers could bring this information to the notice of any under-5s of their acquaintance, as we understand that not all toddlers are regular readers of Village News.
