AN afternoon of fun and games marked the official opening of a new family play and recreation area.

Lancaster City Council has worked with the local community to design the new Claypitts play area in Morecambe.

Kids were given the chance to try out the new play equipment, there were free refreshments, face painting, balloon modelling and a children’s entertainer.

Coun David Smith, Lancaster City Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for Environmental Services, said: “The design for the Claypitts play area has been a real team effort between the council and local people, showing how we can all work together to take pride in our communities.

“Having visited the Claypitts play area several times recently I’ve seen that it is already proving popular and I’m it sure it will quickly become a popular community resource for all.”

The Claypitts play area includes play areas for both toddlers and older children and a multi-use games area (MUGA).
