SMILES could be seen on the faces of the children of Gawcott last week when a new £80,000 play area was opened.

Although the play area, which is at The Rise, is managed by Aylesbury Vale District Council’s open spaces department, the parish council raised the cash, including grants from WREN and the Buckingham and Gawcott Trust, for the new equipment following a meeting with nearby schools and parents.

Alan White, chairman of the parish council said: “The department is to be congratulated for the hard work they put into this project by listening to the community and working with them to produce a magnificent play area”.
