New life has been breathed into an old Folkingham play area thanks to support from Lincolnshire County Council and its leader Coun Martin Hill.

Coun Hill has donated £500 from the Councillor Big Society Fund and a further £12.75k was awarded to the project through Lincolnshire County Council’s Community Grants programme, which aims to help sustain a healthy, prosperous and safe life in Lincolnshire.

The Folkingham community now has access to a new £75k state of the art play area, complete with a climbing wall, climbing nets and a brand new area for younger visitors to the park.

An event was held on Sunday to celebrate the official opening of the play area, attended by residents from the area and Coun Hill, who said: “I’m very happy to see that the funds have been put to good use. The equipment is already proving popular with residents of all ages, and I’m sure it will continue to be well used for years to come.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has enabled the play area to come to fruition and worked over the years to make this happen. I’d particularly like to thank Victoria Strauss acting on behalf of Folkingham Parish Council for her hard work, and Hannah Weston Smith for organising the picnic on Sunday.”
