EXCITED children clambered into a brand-new swing at a play area.

Rowlands Castle Parish Council unveiled the £3,500 bucket swing yesterday.

The cash was raised at Rowlands Castle Village Fete following a survey to see what 
the community most wanted to add to the village park in The Fairway.

The large swing can fit lots of children at once and is accessible to disabled youngsters.

Parish councillor Steve Protheroe said: ‘My grandaughters love a bucket swing

‘We were looking for a 
piece of equipment that was 
more inclusive to less able children.’

Gill Whatley, admin assistant to the parish, said ‘The beauty of it is that you can get on it with a baby or a disabled child and that’s what we like about it.’
