Foxden Drive play area officially opened

26th September 2016

We're so pleased that the new Foxden Drive play area is now finished and was officially opened on Saturday. 

Sophie Lawrie, now 15, wrote to Maidstone Borough Council 6 years ago about the condition of play equipment in Foxden Drive, even organising a petition!

Finally, after much pressure from Downswood Parish Council to Maidstone Borough Council and work by Downswood's borough councillor Gordon Newton, Sophie was able to cut the ribbon on Saturday afternoon - the refurbished play area, funded by Maidstone Borough Council and Downswood Parish council includes a large open area with Swing, Ball Hoop and Goal Posts and a secure fenced area for the younger children with swings, slides and new benches for parents to relax on!
