A play area is set to undergo further improvements which will cost more than £8,000.

Burnham-on-Sea’s Crosses Pen park is set to benefit from £8,080 of Sedgemoor District Council funding.

The swing frame, which dates back to the 1990s, has reached the end of its life and will be removed and replaced with a modern alternative consisting of two flat seats, one toddler seat and one parent and child seat.

Safety surfacing will also be provided at the play area, in Westfield Road, and works began on Monday and will last for two weeks subject to favourable weather conditions.

Scott Mason, parks development team leader, said: “The parent and child seat will be the second of this type installed within Burnham and Highbridge following a successful trial at Apex Park last year.

“The swing seat promotes interaction and communication between generations.”
