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.

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.
