Children from Grenville Combined School helped Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) chairman Michael Rand cut the ribbon at the official opening of the new-look Bridge Street play area in Buckingham last Thursday.

Children from the school were consulted by AVDC on the design of the new playground, which includes a Tarzan swing, a rope bridge and a high tower with a slide.

The project to transform the outdated play area into a safe and modern facility was funded by contributions totalling £64,000 from WREN, the Bucks County Council Community Leaders’ Fund and developer contributions.

District councillor Howard Mordue said: “Outdoor play is an important part of children’s development and we are delighted to have supported this project.”
