High Peak MP Andrew Bingham has said he is 'delighted' that the Friends of Conduit Street Playing Fields in Tintwistle have been awarded £40,000 from Veolia to replace the current play equipment on the fields.
"I was absolutely delighted to learn that the Friends of Conduit Street had been successful in their bid. As they said to me when I visited them recently, it really is a great Christmas present. They first visited me over a year ago to tell me their ambitions for the play area, and I visited them only recently.
"I was very happy to write a letter of support for the bid and it’s to their great credit that it has been successful. I look forward to visiting again when the work is done."
