Evennett Backs Barnehurst Playground Campaign

Bexleyheath and Crayford MP David Evennett joined local residents at the Old Manor Way Children’s Playground in Barnehurst on Saturday morning (21/3/15) to support the Campaign to save the valued local facility.

Mr Evennett met the campaigners who are fighting to ensure that the Playground is not sold off for housing development and discussed their campaign plans. Barnehurst Councillor David Hurt was also in attendance.


Mr Evennett commented “I was surprised to learn that the Playground was on the list of possible sites to be sold off by the Council and have been in touch with local Councillors and Cabinet Member Cllr Alec Sawyer. This Playground is popular, much loved, well used and an important local facility which has existed since the Second World War. I do hope the Council will not proceed with disposal of this Playground and will listen to the views of local people.”
