The huge effort by the people of Bolton-le-Sands to raise more than £80,000 to a create a new playground for the children of the village was celebrated on Saturday with a formal opening and family fun day.
Cutting the ribbon alongside playground committee chairman Coun Keith Budden was seven-year-old Harry Mason, who single-handedly raised more than £500 for the project with a sponsored walk.
Also taking pride of place in the celebration was Eleanor Patterson, six, who designed the colourful flag which flies over the new layground.
Dozens of families turned out to join the fun at the event which was the culmination of almost two years of hard work by the committee and their supporters.
The Community Playground Project was formed to raise funds to redevelop the village playground near the community centre, where the equipment was aging and the design dated.
A local awardwinning playground designer with support from Lancashire County Council was commissioned to guide the redevelopment and local children were consulted to help with the design of the playground.
Now the committee is seeking to raise further funds to replace the iron fence which borders the playground area.
