READ youngsters joined Ribble Valley’s Mayor Coun. John Travis and MP Nigel Evans at the official opening of their new playground.

The youngsters showed off their skills on the new equipment to the assembled dignitaries back in autumn 1992.

A £15,000 improvement scheme launched by the Read and Simonstone Playground Association provided additional play equipment, dog-proof fencing and safe surfaces for the children. Chairman Dr Richard Freeman expressed thanks to all those who had been involved.
