£210K funding for play areas in East Lindsey


Two play areas in Louth are to receive a facelift in the coming months thanks to funding from East Lindsey District Council.

The play area in Mount Pleasant will have new toys installed, and the safety surface will be replaced.

Sandringham Drive’s play area will also benefit from new toys and the safety surface will be replaced.

New equipment for young children with 
disabilities will also be installed at both sites.

The Alford Memorial Park will be cleaned and the safety surface will be replaced.

ELDC’s Portfolio Holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, Coun Adam Grist, said: “Play parks are important to communities. As well as keeping our younger residents fit, healthy and active, they have a social-side where families come together and many friendships are made.

“We hope that the refurbishment will make our play parks a better 
place for families and friends to spend their time.”

Work begins this month and play areas will be closed during refurbishment.
