An East Brent play park will receive a five-figure upgrade to improve facilities for children in the village.

The money will be spent on a basket swing, flat swing and parent and child swing for the park in Red House Road.

A new gate and safety surfacing will also be installed.

The total cost of the project is £14,489.

Work on the park will begin on December 3 and is expected to last for three weeks, subject to weather conditions.

The park was last improved in 2013, when a climbing frame, roundabout and springer were added.

Bill Walker, East Brent Parish Council’s chairman believes the refurbishment project will make a lasting difference for youngsters living in the village.

He said: “It will now be possible to make further improvements to this well-used play area.

“We look forward to enabling children to enjoy this park area even more over the coming years.”

Sedgemoor District Council and East Brent Parish Council are responsible for maintaining the park.

The renovation work will be funded with help from developer contributions.
