Play area with design chosen by children opens
by David Simister

A NEW playground created with the help of Burscough's youngsters will be officially unveiled for the first time at a ceremony at 1pm today (Wednesday).

Pupils at Lordsgate Church of England Primary School have given a helping hand with the new play facility at Pickles Drive, after they told the borough council which of the designs on offer for the site was their favourite.

Councillor David Sudworth, portfolio holder for leisure, said: “I am sure the new play area will prove very popular with the children and it will be a fantastic facility for them. Residents came forward to tell us what they wanted here and I am delighted we have been able to provide that.”

Funding for the £45,800 project were raised by the local authority through developer contributions from nearby housing sites. An initial consultation had also been carried out with nearby residents, who identified the need for a fenced play area as a priority.

The new playground is based on a design from Surrey-based firm HAGS SMP Playgrounds Ltd, after the children chose it as their favourite by a large margin.
