The renovation, beginning on Monday, July 8, will see old equipment removed from the play area and replaced.

A new surface is also being laid.

A spokesman said: “The works are expected to take 2-3 weeks. During this period there will be machinery on site, as well as vehicles for the delivery and removal of equipment.”

The Ducky play area, also known as The Common, is on the right hand side of Broadbridge Heath Road when travelling towards Warnham.

The spokesman added: “We appreciate your understanding during these works and look forward to seeing the new play area complete and being enjoyed by our residents.”
