A fun day takes place on Saturday to celebrate the opening of Cawston’s new play area.

A host of fun and games take place from 10.30am to 2pm to mark the official opening of the £250,000 play area, with the Deputy Mayor of Rugby, Cllr Ramesh Srivastava, cutting a celebratory cake.

The play area, located behind Cawston Grange Primary School, has been designed to provide fun for all the family, and features a host of state of the art equipment.

The borough council has worked with Cawston Parish Council to deliver the ambitious project, while pupils from Cawston Grange Primary School helped with the design.

Play equipment on offer includes trampolines, a climbing wall and net, carousel and rope swings, a double cableway, rope bridge, a sand ‘factory,’ and an embankment slide.

In addition, the play area’s outdoor gym features a cross trainer, air walker, ski trainer, and fitness ladder.

Cllr Dr Mark Williams, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for sustainable environment, paid tribute to the partnership between the borough council and the Cawston community which has helped make the project a success.

“I am delighted the borough council have been able to work with Cawston Parish Council, Cawston Grange Primary School, and the residents of Cawston to build this new play area,” Cllr Williams said.

“The facilities are superb, and I’m sure our children and young people will enjoy playing there.”

Cawston Fun Day includes sports activities organised by the council’s Play Rangers, arts and crafts sessions, entertainment from Eddie the Clown, face painting, and ice cream.
