The Nanneella Playgroup has revamped its playground thanks to a grant from Rochester Community House and Elmore/Lockington and Rochester Community Bank branches.
Last year the group only had a wooden fort in the yard.
With $1500 from community house and another $2000 from the bank, the playground has now extended to include a slide and the ground is lined with soft-fall bark for the children’s safety.
Nanneella Playgroup president Megan Ilton said the new facility was fantastic.
‘‘The kids haven’t been off it since it went up,’’ she said.
She said the new equipment made a huge difference to the group as the children spend more time outside instead of playing indoor games.
