A new venue is hoping to score a success with younger residents after it was officially opened.

A multi use gaming area for children and teenagers to play a range of sports has been opened thanks to support from Cramlington Town Council.

The town council has built a £42,000 Multi-Use Gaming Area for the younger residents of Cramlington to enjoy.

The new gaming area has been built on the commonly known Dolly Heap in Cramlington’s East Ward.

Youngsters are now able to play a range of sports at the facility, including football, basketball, netball and many other games.

The funding has been raised through Northumberland County Council’s Housing Developers Fund contributing £25,000 towards the newly built site.

Local counillor Ann Mitcheson said: “I am thrilled we are able to provide the younger residents of Cramlington somewhere to play.

“We are committed to providing the residents of Cramlington, both young or old, with facilities to help keep them active.”
