Improvements at Haregate play areas now complete

With the onset of longer - and hopefully warmer - days, residents in Haregate can look forward to enjoying time outdoors at three newly improved local play areas.

Investment in the sites, at Ball Haye Recreation Ground, Haregate Hall play area and The Waste open space, has been provided by the ASCENT housing project and the schemes will be managed by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.

And with work at all three sites complete in time for the summer, the local community will be able to make full use of the sites during the coming months including the summer school holidays.

Keith Parker, Head of Operational Services at the Council, said: "Investment in these schemes has delivered three diverse, fun and accessible new play areas for the local community in Haregate.

"It's as important as ever for young people to get involved in sport and physical activity and the provision of amenities such as this offers them the opportunity to do so. I hope young people and their families will make good use of them and enjoy the equipment."

The project has seen revitalised play areas at Ball Haye and Haregate Hall and the installation of new low-level equipment at the Waste which respects the natural surroundings in this location.  Work at all three sites has been carried out by HAGS-SMP play company.

Ball Haye Recreation Ground is owned and managed by Leek Town Council who provided funding for the scheme.
