Staff and children at Maud Playgroup celebrated the official opening of their new outdoor play area on Saturday, May 31.

The group were awarded £10,000 from the Big Lottery Community and Families fund in October last year and used the money to create an improved outdoor area.

The award was used to create a new path and fenced area which contains soft outdoor flooring, a large storage shed and a variety of new play equipment.

Special guest Peppa Pig cut the ribbon to the delight of the children.

Maud Playgroup manager Jennifer Gray said: “The funding has made a huge difference and there are now more things for the children to do outside.

“As we are a self-funding group, the extra help has been great.”
