Lytham Close Play Area, Skipton

The Friends of Lytham Close Play Area was awarded £25,000 to purchase and install new and challenging play equipment for 8 -12 year olds.  The play area is a small tarmac surfaced area, from which the original equipment had been removed as unsafe, leaving an area, in the words of the Friends, resembling a prison yard.  Through a combination of on-site workshops and indoor meetings local children and their families designed the new and exciting play facility.  The project has transformed the area, which is being extremely well used on a daily basis.
