New play area

Friday 22nd July

New Play AreaThis afternoon I opened a new play area in Orchard Road, cutting the red ribbon on the swings. Up to now parents in the area have had to take their children across the busy Salisbury Road or George Lane to reach play areas at the Recreation Ground or at Cooper's Meadow.

It was a timely opening as we are at the beginning of the long break from school and I know it will be well used by local families. We will always need to provide areas for the children of Marlborough in which they can play safely and Councillor Alec Light has played an important role in getting this new one up and running.
