  • We apologise for the time it has taken to repair the piece of kit. We asked our engineer to replace the damage handrail several weeks ago but on further inspection it appear the whole of the structure underground is rotten. We have a quotation to refurbish the item which is very high so are looking into the option of buying a new one, whichever is the best value for money option for the tax payer.

  • Over one month later and this is still not repaired/replaced. This greatly impact the parks utility, safety and attraction. Over 3 months is a very poor response to rectifying this situation. Please can you prioritise this.
