Osbourne play park is officially reopened
The refurbished Osbourne play park in Tweedmouth has been proving a popular attraction over the Easter holidays.
Mayor Ivor Dixon and Coun Jim Smith, member for Berwick East on Northumberland County Council, went along on Saturday to see the work that has been done.
“What a difference it has made,” said Coun Dixon.
“Last time I was there it was derelict and people were using it as a dump.
“It just goes to show what can be achieved when you get different organisations getting together and working for the town.

“I spoke to one or two of the parents who had children there and they are so proud of the play park.
“I would like to thank all those involved in getting this off the ground. It’s another feather in our cap.”
The £35,000 refurbishment has been funded by Berwick Town Council with support from the county council, Four Housing and the Simpson McCreath Trust.
It has been installed by play park specialists Kompan.
