Working hard all year round for South Bristol
Dawn Primarolo, Labour MP for Bristol South, joined Bristol’s Lord Mayor, Faruk Choudhury, and local Councillor, Chris Jackson, to officially open a brand new play park on Newquay Road in Knowle today.
Plans for the new play park were drawn-up in consultation with the local community and pupils from Ilminster Avenue E-Act Academy chose the final design from a shortlist of three. The primary school agreed for some of its land to be used for the new play park which is open for the whole community to use.
Speaking after the event Dawn said:
“The new play equipment is fantastic and represents a much-needed investment in this area. I’m sure the new play park will prove very popular with local children and families. The co-operation of the school and local residents has been brilliant and I’m delighted that pupils had the opportunity to choose the play equipment they wanted for their park.”
