DOZENS of children turned out for an Easter egg hunt and ribbon cutting ceremony which marked the official opening of Woodfield play area in Cam.

Brian Whatling, chairman of Cam Parish Council, cut a red ribbon and declared the park officially open.

The play area off Hadley Road has been upgraded with new equipment, an improved multi use games area and an up-dated football area.

One hundred colourful pegs were hidden around the play park which children had to find and then swapped for an Easter egg.

There were also ball skills games.

Councillor Whatling said he was delighted with the number of children and their parents who turned out for the event. “It was good fun and great to see so many youngsters enjoying the improved facilities.”
