Saintfield Play Park Transformed With £90,000 Funding Package
Local Action Group Chairperson, David Kerr, said: “The new play park is now of a high standard with lots of apparatus which encourage children to play together, interact and socialise through physical activity. It is a valuable community facility that will bring great benefits to the youth of Saintfield and surrounding area.”
