Santa's already been for some

Worcester Editorial 20th Dec, 2013 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

CHILDREN in Worcester have been handed an early Christmas present after a city play area was given a major revamp.

The city council spruced up the area in Cromwell Crescent with new toddler and classic swings, toddler and junior slides, climbing frames, a toddler see-saw, rotating disk, rockers and a log balancing trail.

The equipment, including installation, cost the council £35,200.

On Wednesday (December 18) year two pupils from Red Hill Primary School were on hand to test it out.

David Tibbutt, ward councillor, said: “It’s fantastic news that Worcester children will now have a new area to play and exercise in.

“It’s crucial that the young people have plenty of space where they can be free and have lots of fun.”

Worcester City Council is also making improvements to two other play areas, on Old Tolladine Road and Waverley Street, where equipment has been removed and replaced with new swings and climbing frames.
