YOUNGSTERS have a shiny new playground thanks to a grant from an initiative to spruce up local areas.

The Mortimer Hill playground was chosen as one of the 165 areas to receive a cash injection as part The Transform Your Patch Campaign.

Chairman of Play4All Doris Begg had been working for three years to raise money to modernise the Tring playground.

Phase one of the project was completed but more than £25,000 was needed to complete the second phase.

Transform Your Patch match funded enough money for the playground to be completed with a climbing frame and seesaw, which is proving popular with children.

It opened on Friday, July 13, in plenty of time for the summer holiday.

Doris said: “We were absolutely thrilled especially after working on this for three years. We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us.

“Finally toddlers to teenagers are being entertained and visiting the playground has become an amazing outdoor family experience.”
