New Newport benches

PUBLISHED: 08:59 15 August 2014

Council installs new benches in the Newport area.

NEW seats and picnic benches have been installed in parks off Convent Close and near the Tarka Trail in Newport.

North Devon Council used £3,350 of Section 106 funds for improving public open space.

“The benches look great and we’ve already seen them being used, particularly by walkers and local families enjoying this glorious weather,” said local ward member, Councillor Mike Harrison.

Additional litter bins will also be installed in the area.
