In 2019 the Town Council developed a significant play facility and outside gym at Peoples Park. The Town Council committed funds and secured external funding to develop the £210,000 project. The Town Council has also recently supported Northumberland County Council’s multi-million-pound scheme to restore Hirst Park which includes new play facilities.
