Play Park Opening
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

May 13, 2010: On Saturday 1st May at 2.30pm the townsfolk of Hatherleigh made their way to Island Park for the official opening of the park. The children waited eagerly whilst Play Park Chairman Nick Laing-Taylor and Devon County Councillor James McInnes said a few words. The Park had taken over 2 years to complete at a cost of over 70,000, much of it funded by local people. Moments later Councillor McInnes cut the ribbon and children ran from all angles into the park, their faces beaming from ear to ear! While the park was full of children, the adults retired to the marque to enjoy a cream tea. Refreshments were available all afternoon and the park was full all afternoon too!
