A new multi-play unit was officially opened in the Burton Play Area by Mr and Mrs Griffiths and local children on Saturday 24th March.
Community efforts have been on-going since at least 2015 to renovate the Play Area. A ‘market’ survey was undertaken; plans were drawn up with CW&C acting as consultants and grant applications were made to many funding bodies both local and national with, unfortunately, very limited success.
At this point the people of Burton and Puddington, their friends and relations stepped in giving time, energy and generous donations to complete the project for this phase of the renovation.
The result was a new Multi-Play unit complete with slide, tube, wobbly steps, cargo net, fireman’s pole and an area for imaginative play.
Following the official opening the children enjoyed an egg hunt, craft activities and, of course, playing on the new unit, while parents enjoyed drinks and cakes in the Club House.
