It's time to play - at last!

IT'S not only children who'll be jumping for joy this month as Fishponds gets a double dose of good news on the play front. Chester Park Infants have finally got a new play area after a long wait - while campaigners have been told that replacement of the outdated play equipment in Fishponds Park is going ahead after an even more protracted delay.

Work to remove the 1960s equipment is expected to start this month and it is hoped the £108,000 play area will open in May.

Campaigners say it is long overdue and say Fishponds Park is the last in Bristol to be refurbished.
