Woodlands Grove play area in Froncysyllte was officially opened with help from Froncysyllte County Primary School yesterday.
The Play Areas and one at Solway banks in Brynteg were refurbished with a grant totalling almost £50,000 from WREN, who awards grants to community projects from funds donated by FCC Environment to the Landfill Communities Fund. Support from Wrexham County Borough Council, Broughton Community Council and Llangollen Rural Community Council was also received.
The grant paid for new play equipment which included a mixture of fixed and natural play equipment items.
Meleri Jones, Grant Manager from WREN said “It’s great to see communities benefiting from this funding. A facility that keeps youngsters outdoors and active will provide health benefits as well as fun for years to come”
Cllr Bob Dutton, Lead member for the Environment, said “It is good to see facilities like these being refurbished for our young people. I would like to thank everyone involved in ensuring everything went ahead as planned. I would also like to thank those young people involved for their valuable input into the design of the play areas and hope they take full advantage of and enjoy this new facility.”
