Children in a market town have been treated to new play equipment at their local park.

Fakenham Town Council has unveiled new structures for families to enjoy just in time for the summer holiday at the town’s Millennium Park.

The equipment cost around £25,000.

It was funded by the Fakenham Recreation Ground Charity, of which the town council is the sole trustee.

The new play area replaced the former unit which the council say had been there for some time and became redundant.

Angela Glynn, mayor of Fakenham, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide a modern and exciting play area for the children of Fakenham just in time for when they break up for the school holidays.”

It is currently awaiting a safety inspection and sign-off.
