Thank you to those residents living in Bois Moor Road and Hodds Wood Road who responded to our recent play area survey.

Following the success of the WCA-led refurbishment of the Gordon Road play area last year, the Association have looked at other play areas in Waterside, those in Bois Moor Road (on the way to Chesham Bois) and also Hodds Wood Road. Both of these play areas are managed by Chesham Town Council and were earmarked for closure.

The survey results clearly showed that residents want to keep and improve the play area in Bois Moor Road. There was less support for the smaller play area in Hodds Wood Road.

Waterside Community Association has reached agreement with Chesham Town Council to keep the Bois Moor Road play area open, whilst they fundraise to replace the current equipment and even increase the size of the play area.  The Hodds Wood play area will be closed.

If you would like to be involved in the fundraising to improve the play area at Bois Moor Road, or have any ideas, please contact the WCA Chairman, Shane Willmoth – shane@wcassoc.co.uk

  1. Hi there

    Do you know if there’s any more information about the closure of the Hodds Wood Road play area? I’m hoping it will be dismantled, rather than just left to rot, but it would be good to know…

    Thanks

    • Hi Sally,

      Following the WCA survey the clear choice was to keep the Bois Moor Road play area open. There was less support for Hodds Wood and the site will be dismantled.

      Regards
      Carin
