Packet pays for new shelter on Mylor playing field

First published in News

A new shelter has been installed on Mylor’s King George V playing field after bad weather caused the project to be delayed.

The youth shelter, put up with money from the Gannett Foundation, the charitable trust of the Packet’s parent company, will be a meeting point for young people from the area, and is already being put to use.

Mary Richardson, chair of the playing field committee, said: “It’s been great, for the teenage girls in particular, but it’s used by most of the children and parents who come on the playing field.

“It’s proved quite popular. It’s a real addition to the ongoing development of the playing field.

“The committee would like to thank the foundation and the Packet for making it possible.”

The playing field is going through a series of upgrades, having recently had football goal posts installed, which Mary said were proving very popular, and the next aim is to find funding for the tennis courts.

She said: “They are very popular, well used, and have been here many years, but they are past their sell by date.”

She added:”The playing field is very well used, even in the day there are people with toddlers.

“It’s a real community space.”
