 The park continues to stand up well to heavy use, and maintence is now reasonable, with the benches finally cleaned and overhauled. Dobbin, the wooden pony that stood in front of the cart in the play area had to be retired due to an age related ailment (well, timber decay!) after standing by his cart for some 35 years.

RCAS has funded the replacement (see below), commissioning an original work by local wood carver, Andrew O'Neill. This has been carved from English Oak sourced in Gloucestershire.
