New play park brings smiles to RAF Shawbury

RAF Shawbury's new play park was officially unveiled during its Families Day event by Air Vice-Marshal Warren James CBE, Air Officer Commanding 22 (Training) Group. He cut the blue ribbon in front of excited and eager children, who proceeded to test out their new play area.

The new layout has been designed for children of all ages, replacing one which only catered for toddlers. It was created in consultation with the young people at RAF Shawbury. This was to ensure that the park would let them have fun, learn new skills, interact with other children and increase physical fitness.

Mrs Gail Moore, Community Development Officer at RAF Shawbury, said: "The unveiling of this park was the result of a great team effort by Proludic, CarillionAmey and the RAF Benevolent Fund.

"It will make a huge difference to the children who will now have a safe and stimulating environment to play in. We are especially grateful to the RAF Benevolent Fund for making this possible."

Mark Quinn, Regional Director of the RAF Benevolent Fund, said: "To able to able to provide funding for this play park and see the smiles on the faces of the children has been wonderful.

"The RAF Benevolent Fund is very proud to support Serving personnel and their dependants and I very much hope this facility will be enjoyed by many for years to come."
