A PARK in Neston has been awarded £10,000 to renovate its play area.
Ringway Park will be given a much-needed makeover for youngsters and older children to enjoy.
The cash will be used to refurbish existing play equipment, install new apparatus and seating areas.
A gate will be put in to keep stray dogs out, as well as landscaping throughout.
Work is expected to begin in April or May this year. Cheshire West and Chester Council were given the money from The Veolia Environmental Trust, as there is no other adequate play facility in the area.
The new facilities will have year-round access and make it inclusive to children with disabilities and parents with prams.
Ward councillor for Neston, Andy Williams said: “It is great that The Veolia Environmental Trust has awarded this grant. We look forward to working with them to develop and undertake a scheme that will result in the best for the young people of Neston.
“Children will no longer have to travel considerable distances to access decent play facilities.”
The Veolia Environmental Trust’s executive director, McNabb Laurie, added: “We look forward to the scheme starting. We have been awarding grants to community and environmental projects like this one for over 15 years now and every one has made a real difference to people’s lives.”
