The much-loved children’s playground in Walnut Road Mere has now open, thanks to the improvements made by Mere Town Council. The council received a grant from The Hills Group Limited, made available through the Landfill Communities Fund.
All the old equipment has gone, and there’s a range of new and exciting apparatus. The reopening of the park was celebrated with a tea party on June 22nd. Libby Raynes, a year 5 pupil at Mere Primary School, won a competition to design a new sign for the park, and Katheryn Lamb, a children’s author and illustrator, chose the winning design. Mere Town Council has overseen the entire project, and co-ordinator Roger Pipe expressed gratitude to The Hills Group, Wiltshire Community First, the Duchy of Cornwall, and the Walnut Tree Hotel for their support and for the tea!
