The play area in the centre of the village is known as The Poleaxe. It is named after a public house that previously stood on the site. It is also believed to be a place where animals were slaughtered using a poleaxe. It contains a variety of play apparatus and an open space with a goal and a basketball net. Children are asked to respect neighbours’ privacy when playing on The Poleaxe. To help with the maintenance of this area, residents are encouraged to participate in the periodic tidy-up sessions. Dogs are not allowed on the Poleaxe.
