Boost for play areas.
Wolverhampton City Council has secured the money from the BIG Lottery Fund to help develop four play areas in parks across the city.
The largest grant, for pounds 84,000, will see the development of a new play area in Dovecotes, Pendeford, close to the recently restored 17th century dovecote.
Springvale Park in Ettingshall will also get a new play area thanks to a pounds 76,000 grant which will replace one which was wrecked by vandals three years ago.
In Low Hill, a grant of pounds 62,384 will help refurbish Peach Tree play area while at Ashmore Park, plans are being drawn up to redevelop the existing playground and upgrading the BMX track.
