New playground in memory of Grace
CHEERS of delight greeted the opening of a new games area at Grace's Playground, in Ilmington.
Children from Ilmington Primary were excited to try out the football wall and basketball half-court – known as a MUGA (multi utility games area), which cost more than £11,000 to install.
The new area had been built under the guidance of Ilmington Parish Council, who were keen to replace an existing dilapidated skateboard ramp with something that would appeal to children and indeed adults of all ages.
The project has been funded by an £8,000 grant from Tesco's Bags of Help Campaign, generous local benefactor Sarah Holman, the Red Lion pub, and Grace's Fund.
