Aimed at older children, it replaces the existing equipment which is more than 10 years old and has been discontinued by manufacturers

Meanwhile work to install new equipment at the skatepark at Diss Sports Park will begin on October 21 with it reopening on November 1.

Both are part of a boost to recreation facilities in Diss and Roydon being paid for with 106 funding that has come through agreements with developers.
