[Y]oung people, especially those living on Penrith’s Scaws estate, won’t have too much longer to wait until they can play on a new multi-use games area made possible by fundraising by the Scaws Tenants and Residents Association in partnership with Eden District Council.
The games area will be officially opened by invited guests on Thursday 19 May at 4pm and local residents and other members of the public are most welcome to attend.
Representatives from many organisations that have financially contributed to the project will be at the event including Eden Housing and Pride of Penrith Lottery.
