Earlier in the week the Isle of Wight council announced that children’s playgrounds would be reopening this weekend.

It’s great news for parents of small children, who have clearly missed playing on the swings, slides and roundabouts.

Not all playgrounds are reopening
However, not all playgrounds are managed by the Isle of Wight council – some are run by local town, parish or community councils.



Some of these, such as Newport and Carisbrooke say they are not ready to reopen their playgrounds just yet.

They’ve had 12+ weeks to get them ready. What went wrong? It’s a good job the council doesn’t run pubs…
