More than 100 residents enjoyed a free family fun day, organised by East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) Communities team, marking the official opening of the Crescent play area in Littleham.

Councillor Geoff Jung (EDDC’s Portfolio Holder for Coast, Country and Environment), cut the red ribbon to officially open the play area, which is part of a £283,000 investment project across the district.

Local children were consulted about what they wanted in the new play area, and all these items of play equipment were installed. The park includes a ground level trampoline, a zip wire, a tall exciting slide, climbing frames and swings.

Families at the community day celebrated with an ice cream, taking part in circus skills, and playing 'giant' sized games including Jenga and Connect 4.

Councillor Anne Hall, Ward Member for Exmouth Littleham, said:

"Great to see the play area investment for the Littleham community officially opened, for the future enjoyment & entertainment of our children. Thanks to all involved in delivering this new facility"

Councillor Nick Hookway, Ward Member for Exmouth Littleham, added:

"I hope that Littleham residents will enjoy this new playground for many years to come."
