Elsie Harvey and her brother Colin Atkinson cut the ribbon to the new facility, which is named Libby’s Park after their mother, who was a well-respected member of the community.

They were joined by the chairman of Seaton Valley Council, Coun Stephen Stanners, and Coun Dan Nesbit – the quartet is pictured above.

The new park was jointly funded by Seaton Valley Council and Northumberland County Council via a contribution from its Housing Developer Fund. It replaces the play area at Burnside Gardens, with the new park having a more central location for residents and children.

Coun Stanners said: “It’s brilliant to see a new park in Seghill, I’m sure it’s something that will provide years of enjoyment for young people.”
