Cash to keep kids playing

PLAYTIME just got more fun, thanks to a cash boost of pounds 1.5m across County Durham.

Play Durham has been launched at The Greenhouse in Annfield Plain, Derwentside.

The new group will work to make sure children and young people in the county benefit from access to a wide range of play opportunities.

Together the county's district council's have secured more than pounds 1m of Big Lottery funding to plough into play schemes.

Angela Harrington from Play Durham said: "We realise the importance of play and are keen to work together to provide the best play opportunities."

Michele Deans, regional manager of Play England, said: "It is wonderful to be able to work together to develop play and raise its profile."
