CHILDREN in Harmondsworth can look forward to a new playground next year thanks to a grant of £60,000 from Hillingdon Council’s Chrysalis fund.
Heathrow Villages community development officer, Kate Birch, who put forward the application for funding, was delighted by the news.
She said: “I spoke to several parents and they all felt the existing facilities were run down and not fit for purpose.”
Hillingdon Council will now go through a consultation and design process and Ms Birch is hopeful that work can start in the spring of 2013.
Ms Birch added: “I’d really like to do something similar in Sipson.”
