West End Play Area, Oswaldtwistle
There had been great demand for improvements to this local play area for many years particularly from a young local lad and his family. It had been the subject of several funding applications in the past and Newground had a long history of supporting its development.
In 2014 there was finally sufficient funding to proceed and enhancement of the existing toddler play area in the south of the site and the design of an extended play area for older children to the north of the site began. The scheme also involved some outreach youth work due to some anti social behaviour associated with the site.
