Red rock climbing challenge at Sidmouth play area
Ham play area transformation continues with delivery of concrete rock climb
KIDS in Sidmouth will soon be able to climb a cliff-face.
Not the real red rocks of Sidmouth, but a purpose-built red concrete climbing rock, which was installed at the Ham play area on Wednesday.
Some �40,000 has been allocated to transform the area and the rock; with two elevations, one offering a harder challenge, was on the wish-list of local children.
Marcus Reader of Hags Play Ltd., was there to oversee the craning in of the 9.5 tonnne, 3.6m high rock, as was Nick Struthers-Frost, technical officer for East Devon District Council, who is working with Sidmouth Town Council over the project.
