The residents of Swaffham Town Council enjoyed a fantastic celebration last week to mark the opening of their new Multi-use Games Area (MUGA) and Skatepark at the Recreation Ground at Haspalls Road.

Residents have been fundraising for a good many years and successful grant bid applications throughout 2016 helped raise the total fund to an amazing £150,000. The tender for the MUGA was awarded to HAGS and Wheelscape provided the Skatepark. A true Multi-Use sports area providing opportunities for running, fitness training, basketball, football, goal shoot practice, table tennis, cricket skills, roller skating, scooters and more!

The site celebrations started after school with a variety of people attending from young children, making full use of the track-way with roller skates and scooters, to older children having an informal kick-about with their mums. Personal trainers were on-hand to help organise the fun and the children were treated to goodie bags, snack boxes and fruit smoothies. Even the Town Crier practiced his basketball skills!

Helen Sephton-Pike, Area Sales Manager said “This is a fantastic achievement for the town and a great example of bringing people together for a common cause. It was really great to see just how a well-designed MUGA can be used and by such a wide spectrum of the community in age and abilities.”
