YOUNGSTERS are getting into the swing of a new playground - opened thanks to a £50,000 funding boost.

Swings and a climbing wall are among the new facilities at the play area in North Wingfield, near Chesterfield, the latest site to be improved by North East Derbyshire Council.

The playground on Blacks Lane was opened officially by Natascha Engel, MP for North East Derbyshire.

Coun Nick Foster, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We’re delighted to create this new facility. The equipment was picked following consultation with local children.”

The space was funded by £29,500 from the national Playbuilder scheme and £20,500 from North Wingfield Parish Council.
