Durham South Lib Dem County Councillor David Stoker backed the community project to completely renovate Shincliffe Village Play Park.
The team, led by Peter Ferries, supported by Stephen and Julie Goodhart, and Paul Baker, raised the full amount needed, including a substantial contribution from Cllr David Stoker’s local neighbourhood budgets.
David said “I am delighted that both Shincliffe and High Shincliffe now have modern, exiting and safe parks. These parks are encouraging children to be out in the fresh air, which is obviously good for both physical and mental health, particularly in these times when so many activities are restricted”
The park has been transformed with all new equipment, and to the high standard that was achieved with the play park at High Shincliffe. Local residents’ donations, charities and David’s neighbourhood budget all contributed to the scheme.
