King George V Park, Letham

[flagallery gid=6 name=”Gallery”]

On Wednesday 5th October 2011, King George V park was finally re-opened after a 3 1/2 year project to breathe some new life into a tired old park. Master of Cermonies was David Hamilton, Chair of the Community Council but the actual cutting of the ribbon was done by Cllr Andrew Arbuckle. The stars of the afternoon were however the dozens of children from the Secret Garden Playgroup and Letham Primary who joined in the fun cheering on the many people who had made the project happen.

The park now has a great range of play equipment and adult exercise machines but the highligt has to be the clay shelter that replaces the rotting wooden shelter.

This was a superb example of multi-agency and community funding coming together to make Letham a better place. Attached is the “Fairy Tale of Letham Park” which includes all the people involved in the project.

Additionally Peter Cuthbert from Angle Park deserves a special mention for his help and supply of the shelter building materials.
