A SCHOOLGIRL has cut the ribbon at new play equipment in Kingsley Holt. The official opening of the new play area at Kingsley Holt recreation ground took place on Thursday last week. Jasmine Barker, 11, is Head Girl at St Werburgh's Primary School and was chosen to cut the ribbon at a special ceremony.

The play equipment was funded thanks to a grant from the Kingsley Community Fund through the Community Foundation of Staffordshire.

Proceeds from the sale of the former youth club in Holt Lane, Kingsley, is to fund new community projects for young people in the parish.

The grant received for the improvements to Kingsley Holt recreation ground was £23,716.58.

Ken Unwin, chairman of Kingsley Holt Community Fund spoke to assembled villagers and visitors before trustees of the Kingsley Community Fund, Ivor Lucas and Ann Evans officially opened the new equipment.

Karen Bateman, of Kingsley Holt Community Fund said: “Despite the weather forecast the sun shone, and the event was very well attended by the community of Kingsley Holt and from neighbouring villages and towns.

“The children at the event had a lot of fun testing out the new kit, and having a go at the different activities on offer at the various stalls: Circus Academy Leek, Kingsley Kingfishers, Relax Kids Staffordshire, Skaters Club Cheadle and Pop in Toddler Group.

“There were also complimentary refreshments on offer at the nearby chapel, with many delicious cakes made by villagers for the day.”
