Axminster residents to choose play area

PUBLISHED: 13:59 20 July 2010

AXMINSTER residents will be able to choose the new play equipment for Millwey Rise at a fun event on Tuesday, July 27.

As well as voting for which of the designs they want, children can have their faces painted, learn some circus skills and play giant games with their families.

The East Devon District Council organised event will be held on ‘The Square’ behind the Spar Shop between 2.30 and 6.30pm. This is the site of the new play area, which replaces the existing one by the football pitch.

Since spring 2008, a group of local residents have been working with EDDC officers to design the new play area.
