The refurbished and improved play equipment in the Newcastleton Park was officially launched last Thursday.
A large turnout of families with children came to see Bertha Inglis cut the ribbon. She is the oldest member of Liddesdale Ladies Amenities Group (LLAG) which raised the money to build the original play park in 1972.
The charity, Friends of Newcastleton Park, and LLAG, together with community support, have been working closely with Scottish Borders Council officers Alistair Finnie and Dougie Mallin who provided most of the equipment and had it installed two weeks earlier. It has already proved a great hit with village children.
