The makeover of the Scalpay Playpark is almost complete and due to be officially reopened on Saturday, August 20.

Scalpay Community Association is planning a Grand Reopening ceremony and a fun day to mark the events. 

In a Facebook post, the association said: “This has been a long time coming, and we are so pleased with the progress that’s been made. We have planned a day of fun to celebrate the playpark being a usable space again and the children having a safe place to play.”

However, the association is looking for volunteers to run the various. If you have an hour or two to spare, the association would like to hear from you.

The new look playpark fun day and reopening start at noon and run until 4 pm.

Among the attractions are a bouncy castle, a fancy-dress competition, a barbecue, games, and tea and coffee.
