WORK should start on Monday on a new play area in Talbot Close, Highbridge.

The new area will include a four-seater seesaw, roundabout and toddler multi-play centre.

The fencing and play area has cost more than £31,000 and has been funded through developer contributions given to Sedgemoor District Council.

The work will take three weeks and during that period the nearest alternative facilities available are at Apex Park.
