Hale Lane has been ignored.

WITH reference to your page 3 story last week, Estate 'cut off' from play facilities by A35. I completely agree with Roy Coombs, Honiton town councillor, about his concern that money is being spent elsewhere rather than on a children's play area in Hale Lane

WITH reference to your page 3 story last week, Estate 'cut off' from play facilities by A35. I completely agree with Roy Coombs, Honiton town councillor, about his concern that money is being spent elsewhere rather than on a children's play area in Hale Lane.My family and I have lived in this isolated little estate since 1986 and our children are now 20, 16 and 15. They, and many other families, have never had a place to play - or they have had to cross the busy A35 Kings Road (with no crossing!) to play facility areas in the main town. The only place to play football or ball games in general in Hale Gardens is in the street, which is primarily potentially dangerous due to vehicle movements, but also people who park in the area are risking possible damage to their cars etc. There have been a couple of campaigns for a play area, but to no avail. It is too small a project, or not deemed a priority, but we have all seen lots of money wasted on far less important schemes. Lets hope Roy gets some support this time.Please, Someone Important, take note and let's have some action at last; we are still here, even though our children have passed that stage.There's plenty of other new young children in Hale Gardens who would appreciate it now and in the future!Letters of support from Herald readers would be appreciated and they could be passed on to Roy.
