BIG cash boost for village playpark

PLANS to develop a family play and recreation area in the heart of Heysham village have taken a huge step forward with the securing of a further £48,000.

Heysham Neighbourhood Council has been working with Lancaster City Council to develop designs and raise funds for a new exciting community play facility to be located on the open space at the centre of the village.

Careful design will ensure the new facility is in keeping with the character of the village and equipment has been carefully selected based on the results of a detailed consultation undertaken with local residents and school children in June last year.

This project has already secured £30,000 from Lancaster City Council to provide a small area for toddlers and play equipment including a spinney cup, springy seesaw and a basket swing.
