Hot Scotch Park now open for fun

Hot Scotch Park - a new play area in Biddulph Moor - is now officially up and running.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council teamed up with Biddulph Moor Community Association to install new and exciting play equipment at the site after receiving a £50,000 grant from funding body WREN's FCC Community Action Fund.

And to say thank you to everyone for their support, the Community Association held an official launch party earlier this month.

Leader of Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, Councillor Sybil Ralphs, said: "These new amenities offer a range of play equipment for all ages and abilities and the Council was delighted to be able to support the local community in bringing this project to such a successful conclusion.

"I'm sorry I wasn't able to join the team at the official opening but it looks like it was a great day and I'd like to send my congratulations to them. We recognise the value of quality spaces for children and young people to play and be active and I know that this new play area will be much valued and enjoyed by Biddulph Moor families."

WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment though the Landfill Communities Fund.

Richard Smith, WREN's grant manager for the North West, said: "It is always good to see a project we have funded completed. I visited the site last week and the new play area looks amazing, I'm sure it will be used and enjoyed for many years to come."
