New Playground opens in Wetheral Shields

The new playground at Oak Tree Farm

[T]here’s a new children’s playground in Wetheral Shields at Oak Tree Animals’ Charity!

Funded by Cumbria Waste Management Environment Trust and Cumbria County Council, the playground offers a great range of play equipment for children up to 14 to enjoy. The playground will be officially opened on Wednesday 25th October at 2.00pm by BBC Radio Cumbria’s Mike Zeller, ably assisted by Alfie Curtis, who saved up all of his pocket money to help the animals that Oak Tree looks after. The children attending the Charity’s Pony Funday on the 25th will also join in with the celebrations.

Caroline Johnson, General Manager explains “Oak Tree Animals’ Charity welcomes hundreds of families every year to learn about animals, see some of our resident animals and visit the woodland and tearoom. We are delighted to also be able to offer our community a much-needed playground in our area. Open 7 days a week from 10am-4pm, we can now provide a safe place for children to play, learn about animals and for parents to enjoy a cup of tea while supervising their child as they use the playground. We hope that children and their families will join us for the opening of the playground on 25th October with a chance to use the new equipment, explore Oak Tree Farm and Blackburn Woods and meet Oakley, Oak Tree’s mascot.”
