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.

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