Playing with more cash

Increase in funding for play equipment in Honiton.

Plans to provide new play equipment in Honiton’s Allhallows Playing Field have received a cash boost.

The deputy mayor, Councillor David Foster, last week revealed at a meeting of Honiton Town Council that the play equipment funding had been extended by East Devon District Council – bringing the total to �11,400.

Pupils at Honiton Primary School will be helping to choose the new equipment to be installed in the playground and will be able to pick from a selection of options.

From the beginning, families have been encouraged to play a part in the development of facilities at the town centre park.

Work to update play equipment is being carried out in phases and part of the overall scheme has already been delivered.
