David Cameron opens new Shipton play area

SIXTEEN years ago, two 11-year-old girls living in Shipton-under-Wychwood wrote to the parish council asking for a new play area. Their dream has finally come true to the delight of a new generation of children in the village. David Cameron opened the playground and was joined by 27 yr old Emma Cuthbertson, one of the original girls. She said: “I never thought this would be the result of that letter. If you saw it back then there was literally just a set of swings. It’s absolutely fantastic to see it like this, it's so much better.”
