Start date for Holt play area revamp project

Work will be start on improving a north Norfolk play area following a generous donation.

Holt town councillors were told at the annual town meeting on Monday night that Cumbria-based firm Playdale Playgrounds would start work on the Peacock play area this Thursday.

The area will be re-landscaped and is at the end of Peacock Lane. It currently has some children's play equipment.

Town council clerk, Di Dann, said a donation of £250 had been made from a Holt resident.

On top of that the family of Holt resident Stephen Gooch, 57, who died on May 3 have said half the donations from a service of thanksgiving on May 21 would be given to the project.
