A GROUND breaking ceremony was held to mark the start of building work for a new play area in Swinton.

Councillor Ken Wyatt dug into the ground at the site off Dun Street before contractors started work on the new £40, 000 project.

He said “The play area has been sited here for many years and had become somewhat dilapidated with little to interest local children. Let’s hope that this new facility will provide a safe yet exciting environment for the children who live in this area of the town.”
