Chudleigh Mayor Opens New Play Area


The Mayor of Chudleigh, Councillor Richard Webb, cut the ribbon to officially open a children’s play area at The Leighs, a new Wain Homes development in the town.

The opening of the play area, created for children aged between three and twelve, marks the completion of this successful development of 69 new energy efficient homes.

Councillor Webb was assisted at the ceremony by Laura Camp, a resident from The Leighs and founder of the Acts of Kindness charity which aims to support those in need and offers a counselling service for Chudleigh residents. Laura’s 12-year-old sons were the first to try out the new play equipment in the park.

Councillor Webb said: “It was an honour to open a new playpark facility within Chudleigh for local residents and visitors alike.

“I feel strongly that any local new housing development should enhance the local visible infrastructure and this has clearly been the case at The Leighs with creation of this new play area.”

Katie Alderton, sales and marketing director at Wain Homes, said: “Unveiling this new play area is the perfect way to complete a hugely successful development of new family homes.

“It is always satisfying when we are able to include additional facilities on our developments which benefit the wider community. This play area will be a much-loved resource for residents at The Leighs and children from the wider neighbourhood, giving them a safe outdoor space to enjoy the fresh air, exercise and meet new friends.”
