LONG-AWAITED work to build children's play facilities on Banwell's recreation ground could start next month, it has been revealed.

Banwell Parish Council has appointed Sutcliff Play to enhance the site with two play areas and a games arena.

It follows a public consultation on the proposed make-over of the field in Westfield Crescent last summer.

In a report to the council, Councillor Richard Griffin said work could start on the project in February for completion in March.

The chosen plan is for a toddler play area with climbing frame and swings, a teenage multi activity area and a games arena.

To pay for the project the council has a cash pot of £82,169 left by a village resident to go towards the recreation ground.

An update on the work progress will be given at the council's next meeting at the village hall from 7.30pm on January 11.
