Local families were entertained with a Punch and Judy show, juggling, balloon modelling and nature themed arts and crafts at the formal launch of the natural play area in Orchard Meadow in Sunbury-on-Thames on Wednesday 12 April. The April sunshine added to the buzz of the busy event.
Designed for the under 11’s, the play area is made using natural wood materials and includes a range of equipment including climbing logs, balance structures and play boulders. Spelthorne Council obtained external funding for the project from the Surrey County Council Community Improvement Fund and Fields in Trust.
Lisa Stonehouse, Leisure Services Manager, said: “I was delighted to see so many families enjoying our event on Tuesday. I have received many positive comments from parents and I am sure they will continue to have many hours of fun in this playground. We are very grateful to both Surrey County Council and Fields in Trust for providing the funding for this project.”
