A RECENTLY refurbished play area in Wootton Bassett will be officially opened on Monday, February 20.

The modernisation of the play area in Old Court cost £40,000.

The final design was selected by youngsters from Noremarsh, Longleaze and St Bartholomew's primary schools.

The new play area, which has been refurbished thanks to a partnership between Wootton Bassett town and district councils, features colourful swings, a slide, a wooden tower and climbing nets.
