Work has started on improving the Kendal play area and recreational space, following a long campaign by residents. Developments at Hallgarth Park will include a new outdoor gym-style area, a toddler and junior playground and an area for teenagers. The Hallgarth Community Centre Association and South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) are spending £55,000 on rejuvenating Hallgarth Park.

Tim said: "This is fantastic news and I want to pay tribute to everyone involved in this campaign. I know how much the children on the estate missed the play area and speaking to parents, I know how valuable a facility it was. I cannot wait until the work is finished."
