Maintenance and general clearance of the site was carried out by Mr John Morris, Llwynpiod.

Cllr Williams then proceeded to give a short history of the development of the play area and thanked the general public for their support. The event was attended by a number of Community and County councillors and parents.

After enjoying a few minutes on the play equipment, the pupils were soon brought into line by the staff and gave a short rendering of musical and literary items, which were enjoyed by all present. The Chairperson thereafter distributed light refreshments to the children.
