Around £40,000 worth of funding has helped residents of a Scottish town install new play area fencing to a nearby playground.

Cockshaugh Park in St Andrews was turned into a state-of-the-art facility after being given £15,000 from Robinsons Fruit Shoot's outdoor play area project in a competition.

Furthermore, Fife Council contributed £25,000 to the play area's restoration and locals were on hand to unveil the finished construction in the pouring rain earlier this week (August 17th).

Local resident Bren Thompson told that she is delighted with the end product after years of neglect.

"I played at this park as a child. However, over recent years it had become somewhat dilapidated," she told the news provider.

"When I saw the competition I thought I would give it a go and it's great that Cockshaugh was one of the winners."

Elsewhere, Catterick Garrison's play area fencing was installed recently after £74,000 of grants from the government and Ministry of Defence.
