IT’S all swings and roundabouts in Lhanbryde – or at least it will be next year – thanks to a £55,000 investment earmarked for a new playpark.
Moray Council is set to replace the existing playpark at the playing fields, with many items of play equipment worn or beyond repair.
The new playpark is expected to complete by early spring 2021.
New play equipment will suit children and young people aged between two and 15, and the community will be involved in choosing what type equipment will be installed.
The community will also be asked if there are any preferred themes such as farmyard or sports. Pupils from Lhanbryde Primary School will then be asked to choose their top three choices which will be incorporated in the final design.
Councillor David Bremner (SNP, Fochabers-Lhanbryde) welcomed the local investment.
He said: "The playing fields in Lhanbryde have been well-used over the years and the playground is the centrepiece.
"This significant cash boost will see the creation of an accessible playpark with a number of inclusive pieces of play equipment which a range of age groups can enjoy.
"It will be an asset the community can be proud of."
