Justin Opens Latest Inclusive Playground Equipment

North Swindon MP visited Brook Park Playground to open the latest inclusive play equipment in Swindon.

The new roundabout, which is able to be used by children in wheelchair, has been installed by St Andrew's Parish Council, who have been working with Benjamin's Smile and Mums On A Mission.

In 2019, following a meeting with Becky Maddern who was campaigning for more accessible play equipment for children with disabilities, Justin wrote to every parish council in Swindon to ask that accessible equipment be included in any upgrades to their play parks.

Justin said: "This is fantastic, it is great that St Andrews Parish Council has listened to families like Becky's and taken steps to ensure their parks are as inclusive as possible. I really hope this is something that continues, and parish council's will continue to install equipment like this."
