Work begins on new Swinton play area

WORK is due to start this month on a project to improve a rundown play area in Swinton.

Rotherham Council secured £40, 000 funding from WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Limited) to help develop the site at Dunn Street.

Builders are due to start work on site in the coming weeks to remove the old swings and slide and create a new activity area.

Councillor Ken Wyatt said: “The play area has needed improving for years.”
