The new play equipment – installed after input from residents and their children – was funded by Keepmoat, one of the council’s contractors which has delivering its decent homes programme.
“I’m delighted that Wellfield Court has been developed with the input and guidance from the families that live in the area,” said Cllr Webb, the borough council’s executive member for housing.
