Children’s play area for Apley
A brand new children’s play area has been installed at a new residential development in Apley, Telford.
Telford & Wrekin Council worked with Hadley & Leegomery Parish Council to carry out the project with Section 106 funding provided by developer Kier Homes.
The facilities are already proving a big hit with local youngsters – who have been having fun using the new site in Peregrine Way.
The play area design was given a theme of including a castle to reflect the historic nature of the site based in Apley Castle. Several items include a castellated structure to provide a castle-themed feature.
The play area was chosen by the Parish Council from a number of different design options.
Councillor Eileen Callear, Telford & Wrekin Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Libraries and Culture said: “We are delighted to have worked with Hadley & Leegomery Parish Council to complete these new facilities in Apley.
“It is a joy to see everyone together and enjoying what the Councils have provided for the local community.
“The play facilities here are part of our commitment to encourage Telford & Wrekin residents to choose to lead more active lives while enjoying our fantastic outdoor spaces and play areas – which help us to feel better both physically and mentally.”
The play area will be maintained by Telford & Wrekin Council using maintenance funding gained from the developer.
