The official opening of a much-needed new play in Thetford will take place this week.

Work began on the £40,000 play park on the Redcastle Furze estate at the start of last month, and is being installed due to the efforts of an action group and the district and town councils.

The Redcastle Action Group raised £6,000 by organising a number of community fundraising events.

Breckland Council gave a grant of £13,080 and the remaining £20,920 was supplied through the town council's play park reserves.

Councillor Brenda Canham, chairman of the town council's amenities committee, said: 'We are really pleased to see the major improvements that are being completed at Redcastle. 'This would not have been possible without the efforts of the Redcastle action Group and the generous grant of £13,080 from Breckland Council.'
