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.
