New equipment recently installed at Milverton Recreation Centre on Butts Way means that children in the village can now have fun on a Flying Saucer, a Sidewinder, Cockerel Rock’n’Roll and a Crow’s Nest during their schools’ mid-term break.
These installations are among 6 new pieces of play equipment added to the playground following a huge fund-finding effort by Milverton Parish Council and the Recreation Ground Committee who together raised more than £50,000 to pay for the improvements.
The extended playground will be formally opened by the Mayor of Taunton Deane during half-term.
Children are already making use of the new equipment and the revamp is proving very popular with both them and their parents. One Mum, Michele Van der Bijl who had called in at the Recreation Centre with her daughter and her friends on the way home from school, said, “It’s great, a big improvement. The children love it!”
