Dear Residents of all ages,
With much regret, the swings on Lower Common are still out of use today, 1st July 2015!
Unfortunately the four new bearings required, though now enroute from Finland, are essential for attaching the chains and seats for the two swings. Hopefully these parts will be delivered direct to Ellisfield in about 2 weeks from now.
Naturally Ellisfield Parish Clerk has chased their arrival as possible but no-one keeps these parts in stock in UK, apparently.
Am sure that with the kind services of Tony Matthews and Cllr David Richards, these two engineers will mastermind the repairs and get the swings up and swinging as soon as possible.
