Job Done: Creating a children's playground in Chilton

Project Play area installation
Client Chilton Town Council
Contractor Record RSS

The small northern town of Chilton now boasts a new play area for children after local fundraising allowed work to go ahead.

Play and sports equipment manufacturer Record RSS worked with Steve Robinson Landscapes to install the £130,000 play area at Pentland's Park on behalf of Chilton Town Council.

The local authority carried out fundraising work and members of Sedgefield Borough Council part funded the project through its local improvement programme. Additional money came from the Big Lottery Fund.

Staff from Record RSS and Steve Robinson Landscapes completed the work to create the playground in seven weeks.

Record RSS area manager Eleanor Smith said: "We had to take into consideration the children's ages while making sure that there was plenty of space and that it was as challenging as possible."
