Children in Conginsby can no longer complain they have nowhere to play.

The new state of the art School Lane Play Area was officially opened by Peter Bedford recently.

Mr Bedford was representing WREN, the main funders of the project.

The total cost was £60,000 and WREN handed over £45,000.

Coningsby Town Council says it is delighted with the new play park which is already being well used.

In fact, the park is so popular, the council has reminded youngsters that the legal age for using the park is 12 and under.

The council says the park has been specifically designed for youngsters in that age group.

Councillors point out the age range; the village also has a 18 acre recreation area with a Skate Park, Youth Shelter, BMX track and a Multi Use Games Area for teenagers.

They have asked older children to respect the regulations for the new facility.

A number of dignitaries attended the opening, including several town councillors and local County Councillor Colin Mair.
