New play park for Tews Lane

Roundswell’s sport and community facility gets new equipment for its younger visitors.

NEW play equipment installed at Tews Lane in Roundswell is already proving a hit with local youngsters.

Fremington Parish Council chairman Rodney Cann successfully applied for �9,000 from money for recreation facilities paid to North Devon Council by the developers of nearby Brynsworthy Park.

It has paid for a new children’s play area plus combination play equipment that includes a slide and climbing frame.

Mr Cann said the parish council was making new facilities for the renamed ‘Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field’ a priority.

“We’re trying to provide facilities for the youngsters and the community in general, on top of the outdoor gym we installed at Cedar Grove.”

Mr Cann said the council was conscious of security for the new play area and had ensured that neraby CCTV cameras were focused on it.

Councillor Flynn said if the Tews play area proved a success, she was hoping to apply for similar equipment to be installed in her ward at Ellerslie Road.
