A NEW accessible children金光佛论坛檚 playground on St Martin金光佛论坛檚 village green, which includes the Island金光佛论坛檚 first supported seat swing, has been officially opened yesterday.

Year 3 students from the parish school, who were instrumental in the design process, tried out some of the features during the event.

金光佛论坛淧art of my role as chair of PPC is to help Jersey金光佛论坛檚 Democracy to flourish and giving the community opportunities to influence the design of the park is true democracy in action. It was great to look at the children金光佛论坛檚 playground designs and to hear their views, we all listened to each other to reach the best outcome.

金光佛论坛淲orking on this initiative has nicely mirrored the plot of the children金光佛论坛檚 book published by the States Greffe earlier this year, The Many Hands Club, in which a group of young people speak to their Conn茅table about their local playground facilities.

“The book was written to help demonstrate to young Islanders that they can make their voices heard in Jersey金光佛论坛檚 democracy and have an impact on the Island around them.

“I hope that the St Martin金光佛论坛檚 students I spoke to about the playground feel empowered to continue sharing their thoughts and ideas with their elected representatives throughout their lives, and that it encourages others to do the same.金光佛论坛
