A play area in Middlewich is proving very popular with children and families after it was refurbished in a project supported by Cheshire East Council.
The Stallard Way play area was officially opened on Friday, November 14, by Fiona Bruce MP and the Mayor of Middlewich, Councillor Paul Edwards.
The refurbishment project was progressed through Middlewich Vision, Middlewich Town Council and Ansa Environmental Services, Cheshire East Council’s wholly-owned subsidiary for streetscape services.
Councillor David Topping, Cheshire East Council’s Cabinet member for service commissioning, said: “It is good to see that this project has been successful in improving facilities for local residents. I am sure the play area will give people a lot of pleasure for many years to come.”
A very generous £47,500 grant was awarded by WREN, a not for profit business that awards grants to community projects from funds donated by FCC Environment to the Landfill Communities Fund.
Peter Cox, managing director of WREN, said “WREN is committed to funding projects that make a real difference to local communities, children and families.
“The Stallard Way play area will make a fantastic space for local families to get outdoors and have some fun. We are delighted to support the group in making this project happen for the benefit of the local community.”
The project was also funded by Cheshire East Council, Great Places Housing Group, Middlewich Town Council and Middlewich Vision.
