Work is almost complete on an improvement project at Bywell Road Play Area.

Work has been undertaken to install two new pieces of play equipment and safety surface at the play area. 

Works should be complete within the next few days to install the Orient Express Train and the Crazy Hen Springer with the equipment chosen to appeal to younger children.

The work follows the installation of new swings in the play area which was completed last year.
