A COMMUNITY councillor has expressed his delight at a newly renovated play area in Bagillt.

The play area in the centre of Llys Maes Teg, near Bagillt, benefited from a £20,000 makeover – which included stripping the old playground equipment and seating and replacing them with new and improved apparatus.

The improvements include a new swing set, benches, climbing frame and a bee-shaped spring rider.

Cllr Mike Reece has said the developments were welcomed by residents and have really brightened up the area.

He added: “It is such a lovely area and great to see the heart of the community given new life.”

The funding was achieved in part by Flintshire County Council – which matched the £10,000 offered by the community council of Bagillt.
