Monmouth Town Council are pleased to announce the re-opening of the newly updated Drybridge Play Area. On Wednesday 30th November at 11am the Town Mayor will be there to cut the ribbon alongside Town Councillors and Officers from Monmouthshire County Council, who have all worked hard to make the improvements. The play area has recently benefited from some significant developments, including new safety resurfacing, which was part funded by an S106 grant (money distributed by Monmouthshire County Council as a result of residential development locally), along with a new toddler swing and a fully accessible child swing, paid for by the Town Council. Monmouth Town Council would like to extend a warm welcome to all who would like to attend and hope to see the play area being used and enjoyed.
