Play equipment for toddlers has been unveiled in a village.

Caunton Parish Council gained a grant from WREN — a not-for-profit business that awards grants for from funds donated through landfill tax — for climbing apparatus with a slide and a stand-alone slide in the village play area.

Youngsters helped with the ribbon-cutting, which was performed by county councillor Mr Bruce Laughton.

“The parish council is to be applauded for the hard work it does in maintaining and upgrading this play area, which is well used as it is next to Dean Hole Primary School,” he said.

Parish council chairman Brian Robins said: “We are grateful to WREN.”

Villager Kay Campbell was behind a petition set up in support of the WREN application.
