Families will have a new place to play after a village secured £50,000 for a park.
A playpark in Brooke, which closed unexpectedly several years ago, will reopen this spring thanks to a dedicated committee.
The committee, which was created at the end of 2018, wanted a park "to bring families together", raising £50,000 in just over a year for new equipment.

The park will feature combine harvester with a slide and climbing wall, a pump track, a camel slide and a wooden teepee.
All equipment was chosen by primary school children in the area, as well as adults through a Facebook survey.
Various companies have donated generously to the park including Brooke House care home who raised £500.
Rebecca Hodges, a trustee of the committee, said: "The idea was to create a safe space for families and a place where children can learn outdoors and boost their educational and developmental play.
"We're very grateful for everyone who has donated money to play park, it will make a huge difference to our community."
