YOUNGSTERS have given a new £45,000 play area their seal of approval.
Pupils tested Holmebrook Valley Country Park’s outdoor gym and play equipment at the opening by Mayor of Chesterfield Cllr Peter Barr.
He said: “This eagerly awaited, much-needed, project will provide a safe, fun play environment for young people of Holme Hall and Loundsley Green for many years to come.”
Chesterfield Borough Council’s play area involved children and parents in the design. Funding was split, with £25,000 from the county council through the Playbuilder initiative, and the rest through Cllr Ray Russell via the Community Initiative Fund.
