Children’s play areas across the district have been spruced up in time for summer as part of the successful Pride in South Holland campaign

Play equipment at nine sites has been given a fresh coat of paint to ensure that come the summer holidays, it is looking in top condition.

The newly-painted play areas in Spalding include Goodfellows playing field, Park Close playing field, Thames Road and Fern Park.

Other play areas to be given a new-look include Pennyfields in Pinchbeck, Kingfisher Drive in Surfleet, Casswell Drive in Quadring, Chalk Lane playing field in Sutton Bridge and Railway Lane in Sutton Bridge.

A spokesperson for South Holland District Council said: “The Pride in South Holland campaign has gone from strength to strength since we launched it last summer.

“The play areas are now looking a lot better and we’re sure everyone using them this summer will notice the difference.”

The Pride in South Holland campaign was launched in October last year to clean up eyesore sites across the district.

Already the derelict former Bull and Monkie pub in Spalding has been cleaned-up as was a privately-built play area in Crocus Walk, Spalding, which had been badly damaged by vandals.

Other highlights include the clearing of over 200 tonnes of rubbish and fly-tipped items across the district.
