CANONBIE’S Playpark and Playing Field Project will complete the first stage of the project within the week.
The initiative has been a joint effort between the Xcel Project, the Canonbie Leisure and the Redevelopment Association and Canonbie Public Hall and Playing Field Recreation Centre over the last year.
Now the first stage of the project to redevelop Canonbie’s play areas is soon to complete, with the installation of several new pieces of fitness equipment for children to play on.
This includes an arm and pedal bike, a children’s horse, a waist twister and a double slalom skier for younger children, a larger arm and pedal bike, a push and pull down challenger, a double health walker and multi-gym for older children, as well as an outdoor table tennis table.
The funds for these developments were provided by the National Lottery Community Fund and the Canonbie Leisure and Redevelopment Association that both pledged grants of £9450 each.
The second stage of the project aims to redevelop Canonbie Playpark entirely, with a total project cost of £100,000.
An update to this stage should be expected by the end of the year.
