New Welwyn play area opens

A NEWLY refurbished play area opens today (Friday)

The Whitehill play area in Ottway Walk, Welwyn has been given a �53,000 makeover thanks to a fundraising appeal by the Welwyn Playground Support Group (WPSG).

Following donations from Welwyn Parish Council, Lafarge Aggregates and councillors, the play area will now be officially reopened on Friday, April 8.

Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps will be cutting the ribbon at noon.

Isobel Worsely, of the WPSG, said: “It has been a whole community effort, and we would like to thank all the members of the group, and everyone in the local community and beyond who have helped us achieve our aim of this new play area.”
