Play area proves popular
PORTBURY residents gathered on Sunday to celebrate the opening of a new village play area.
Children and adults got together for a barbecue at the site off Church Lane, where the new facility has been created adjacent to Portbury’s rugby field.
Money from the Government’s Playbuilder scheme was used to create the play area and picnic benches have also been put in to make it a community space.
The money given out in April and had to be used by June, giving the project manager Sharon Worthy a short space of time to plan and install the equipment.
During this time, an open day was held for villagers to have their say on what t should be included.
