It brings current funds up to a total of £44,400 which will be used to install a new balance beam, double slide and activity net, swings, roundabout and see other equipment refurbished.

The friends group was also the successful applicant of £30,000 of which comes from the Lancashire Environmental Fund (LEF). It was on top of £10,000 Government money from the Parks Fund which was secured earlier this year.

Christopher Smith‎ of the friends group said: “The money will be used to buy and install an additional piece of equipment to add to other equipment planned for the refurbishment.

“The grant is in addition to £40,000 of grant funding from Central Government and the Lancashire Environmental Fund already secured for the work.

“The upgraded total budget of £44,400 will cover new and refurbished play equipment, repainting of the surroundings and drainage work to make the Play Area a suitable place for young visitors to the park.”
