The popular pirate ship on Kernow Crescent, Fishermead, has been given a boost by the award of £20,000 to create a new park and a sensory garden.
The local team of Labour Councillors, Shammi Akter, Carole Baume and Hannah O’Neill, have welcomed the funding and the development of the park and sensory garden around the existing pirate ship.
The new park, play area and sensory garden were funded jointly between Labour-led Milton Keynes Council and Campbell Park Parish Council. Both put £10,000 into the improvements.
Councillor Shammi Akter said: “I am delighted that the new pirate play park and sensory garden was open for the summer holidays.
Cllr Akter added: “I have started doing an advice surgery at the Campbell Park Parish Council offices on Fishermead. I believe it is important that residents of Fishermead have good services for the many children on the estate. The new pirate ship park play area and the sensory garden are a great addition to community facilities for the children of Fishermead.
Cllr Akter concluded: “I want to thank Milton Keynes Council and the Campbell Park Parish Council for their support and for putting money into our community. We are building a strong partnership approach on Fishermead.”
