Alex Easton MLA has today called for a new playground to be built in the Beechfield , Barnagh and Ashfield area of Donaghadee.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said;


“It is high time that Ards & North Down Council looked at the state of the current play park for children to play in the Beechfield and Ashfield areas, this area has a huge children’s population with tw0 schools nearby. It is important that these children are provided for with the same opportunities as other children have with playgrounds across Ards & North Down. It is vital that the current playground is replaced as it is now years old and not fit for purpose in the long term.”

“I believe the Council needs to engage with the local community group as soon as possible to look at and plan away forward for such a project, we know how long these things can take and the sooner that engagement is started the sooner we get to a positive outcome for the children of Beechfield, Ashfield and Barnagh.”
