We took our grandchildren up to go on the High Ropes on Thursday - it's great to have something like that close by to keep them busy for an hour or so. As we left the car park and passed the brand-new Super Crazy Golf course - which I think Ron also opened a couple of weeks ago - I wondered whether the original course had been squeezed out by the new enterprise. As you can see, it hasn't been - which I think is great news for those wanting a cheap day out for the family.
I believe the Friends of Haigh Hall, who were still working on the entrance to the course, worked hard to keep the facility, as well as putting in the volunteer labour to do it up - Congratulations, and Well Done!

Haigh Hall and the new play area was packed out a couple of weeks ago.

As Chair of the Friends of Haigh Woodland Park I want to thank the Rev Long, and many others who have encouraged and supported us volunteers in maintaining and improving the great value and fun Haigh Crazy Golf. It is great to be appreciated, and we will continue to work for more improvements at Haigh.
