Wanstead Village ward councillors and the council leader welcomed the installation of new play equipment in Christchurch Green just in time for half term.
The playground had some new equipment installed in 2016 thanks to fundraising by parents in the area who raised the bulk of the money with the council pitching in £19,500 at the time.

Cllr Blackman said, “As a mother of two children, I know how crucial it is to have opportunities for children to play and to invest in quality play equipment. The local community played a key role in fundraising for new equipment a few years ago and it’s great the council build on their good work.”
The investment in Christchurch Green playground has included two new roundabouts, three climbing structures, a new table and stepping pods, as well as a new surface.
