The children at Redmile Primary School have put forward their own ideas for the design of the new area, which will be opened on May 11 by headteacher Julie Hopkins.

The park was considered to be ageing and unsafe so a £60,000 grant was successfully applied for from WREN FCC Community Action Fund to go with money raised in the local community.

The revamped park will be finished by the end of this month although the ‘Friends Of Redmile Play Park’ are organising a fundraising event on Saturday June 15 to raise money to finish off the park with seating, planting and secure gates.

The revamped play park takes shape at Redmile EMN-190316-160250001
