In 2010, the Community Council sought transfer of ownership and management of the Memorial Field which includes the playground, from Vale of Glamorgan Council. Concerns about the playground's condition resulted in a team of residents taking action to update and provide a better play area. After consultation with the community, raising funds and seeking permissions, funding was obtained in late 2012, with the build finishing in the spring of 2013. Since then the area has been in constant use and has provided a vibrant and much loved hub for younger members of the community and their parents, guardians, grandparents and childminders.
