A £26,000 programme of work to refurbish play equipment in a village has been completed.

The work started to replace the 25-year-old play equipment in the park at Southwick on August 10.

Slides, swings and surfaces have been renovated, a new 3.3m cone climber has been installed, 
as has a 25m zip wire and 
double and single springers for toddlers.

Southwick and Widley Parish Council carried out research with school children to pick the equipment.

The £26,000 was provided by the Big Lottery Fund Awards for All, Southwick and Widley Parish Council, Hampshire County Council, Hampshire Playing Fields Association, Aspen Waite, Southwick Estate and other Southwick Village organisations.

A grand reopening event is being planned.
