A new multi-use games area (MUGA) will be created in Stevenage, if a bid for funding is successful.

Stevenage Borough Council says it intends to apply for The Football Foundation's PlayZone grant to give people in the town "the opportunity to lead more active, healthier lifestyles".

A spokesperson for the council said: "The funding, facilitated by the Government, Premier League and Football Association, will help support the redevelopment of Stevenage's existing MUGAs and help create a new one.

"The current parks that have been identified are Shephalbury Park, King George V Playing Fields and Hampson Park.

"To give us the best possible chance of being awarded these funds, we need to establish community demand. That means, hearing from the residents of our great town to not only gather their opinions, but to get their insight that will help guide what shape the PlayZone will take.

"We'd love to hear what activities you'd enjoy - it could be anything from football and basketball to netball and fitness classes.

"By completing a survey, you have the opportunity to be entered into a competition to win one of three £50 Amazon vouchers. Just enter your name and email address at the end of the survey."
