Easter celebration at Heath Town
Children in Heath Town, Wolverhampton, had lots to smile about this Easter as three new play parks were opened for public use.
The play areas, created by national contractor United Living, include a range of brand new play equipment within completely redesigned spaces which are hoped to bring the community together as part of the wider regeneration scheme.
The opening, which was attended by representatives of United Living and Wolverhampton Homes, featured a mix of entertainment for which United Living donated £300 towards. This included face painting, Easter eggs and baskets alongside video games provided by local company Arcade Masters.
Tony Tyson-Phillips, Contracts Manager at United Living, said: “Opening the three play areas and seeing such a large turnout within the community highlights why the regeneration of this area is so important. It is our aim to help improve the environment for residents and increase their quality of life, and the positive reaction to the new play areas was very encouraging.”
Easter eggs were also donated to Hope Community, a project that provides support to residents of Heath Town. These were used in an Easter egg hunt for children under 10 in the area, which was a great success.
United Living are working with Wolverhampton Homes delivering a regeneration project to Heath Town, Wolverhampton.
The United Living team based at Heath Town have been nominated for numerous awards, including Team of the Year at TPAS 2019 as well as an annual and monthly SHEQ award in 2018.
