Work set to start on new Fishbourne playground

AFTER nine months of fundraising, work is set to begin on the first stage of a new play area on the Playing Field, in Blackboy Lane, Fishbourne.

The installation of the new equipment for the play area will begin in mid July and the current play area will be closed from Thursday, July 12.

Final clearance of the site will take place over the weekend of Saturday, July 14 and 15, and anyone who would like to volunteer on both or either of the days should contact Karly Phillips on 01243 575698 or email
