Sam Cockrell from the Barley Playground Refurbishment Committee – a team which worked tirelessly to gain funding to carry out the work, said: “The kids have been so excited to see the work in progress and their reaction has been fantastic.

“We really couldn’t be happier and just in time too for the kids holidays, so lots of fun to be had during the summer.”

The committee would like to thank businesses, councillors, private donors and the community for their help.
