Update re Upper Newdale play area on Phase 8

Thank you for your help in designing the Upper Newdale Play area by voting for your favourite design. We had over 400 votes and have now counted them all and the winning design is design B. We have turned one of the items around as we noticed the slide was south facing. This would mean that the metal slide would get too hot in the sun and children using it might burn their legs. Therefore we have turned it around. Please see the winning design below.

The aim is that it will hopefully be built by end of April/early May.
