The newly refurbished Ryefields Park in Woodford Halse will open to the public on Sunday (March 31).

An Easter egg hunt, face painting and balloon modelling will mark the reopening of the park off Willow Close after four village mums raised £22,000 to improve and revamp it. The park now has a fort, assault course, nest swing, climbing wall, slides for young children and more.

The fun event will run from 12 until 2pm and will go ahead regardless of the weather.

The day will be supported by Daventry district council who gave funding for the reopening celebrations. The park was also support by a donation from Daventry and District Housing’s (DDH) community chest fund which is run in partnership with contractor Lovell and local employer Cummins.
