The new Mayor of Gedling cut the ribbon on a revamped play area which was officially opened on Thursday in Arnold.

The play area was improved thanks to funding from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund, a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community projects from funds donated by waste and resource management company FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Portfolio holder for parks, Cllr Peter Barnes said: “We are absolutely delighted that the new play is ready for the young children to use. We have to say a huge thank you to WREN for the funding, they have been brilliant supporters of our borough and this park will be something children can enjoy for many years to come.”
