Members of the YHG Development Team unwrapped an early Christmas present for residents near Admirals Road in Birchwood as they opened a new children’s play area.
The new play area includes swings, a play tower, carousel, seesaw and a mouse rocker. It is built on rubber wetpour safe surfacing, and has a hydraulic self-closing gate providing a safe enclosed space for children to play.
The team met with residents and their children to help spread some festive cheer, handing out selection boxes for the kids which were gratefully received.
Lorraine Donnelly, Development Director for Your Housing Group, said “we’re delighted to take handover of the play area, it’ll be fantastic for the local children, especially in the warmer months. It’s the final touch to an attractive new housing development. Building new housing like this is about much more than just bricks and mortar, it’s about creating communities and this play area is a key part of that.”
The £8.2m housing development was completed by YHG earlier this year. The development comprises of 66 two and three-bedroom family homes which include 10 for shared ownership, 4 for affordable rent and 52 for rent via Nuvu Living.
