Amey Secure Infrastructure, who provide services for the public sector, are spearheading the work and will provide ongoing maintenance to both projects.

The new facilities being built will provide inclusive opportunities for young people to play, with equipment ranging from trampolines, swings and a whirl, with all being accessible to wheelchair users.

The projects are due for completion in August.

John Paterson, operation director for Scotland, Amey Secure Infrastructure, said on Twitter yesterday: “At Amey we’re proud to work on projects that have a positive impact on communities, and that is something that is especially true here.

“We look forward to seeing the two areas in action as we continue to work with Lockerbie Primary School and Academy going forward.”

A Dumfries and Galloway Council spokesperson said: “Having outdoor spaces for pupils to play and learn is important for their development and to help them flourish.

“The outdoor classroom and play equipment that Amey is installing at Lockerbie School are exciting additions that will really benefit the children who get to enjoy them.”
