What was a drab, lifeless play area has been given a colour boost thanks to a ward councillor.

District councillor Bruce Wells is behind the make-over given to the park at Harrowby Lane playing field.

He asked the maintenance team at South Kesteven District Council to make the park a priority, and workers soon came out to give it a lick of paint.

Coun Wells said: “Under-11s really use it. I felt it was looking a bit shabby and they deserve better. They can’t speak for themselves so I thought I would do it for them.

“A bit of paint, make it look spick and span, and it will be there for years to come.

“I don’t want to lose this facility so I thought ‘I’ve got to do something about it’.

“I asked the council, they found a bit of cash and now it looks 100 per cent better than what it was.”
