Ashbourne FG councillor Alan Tobin has taken to social media to welcome the provision of a new disability bench in the local playground.

He posted on Facebook

‘At last, our disability-friendly picnic bench is in place. This all-inclusive bench is located at the playground in Ashbourne. It was funded through my discretionary fund along with Ashbourne Tidy Towns.

‘It is wheelchair friendly and a wonderful addition to the playground at what is now called Frederick Bourne Park. A second bench will be installed in Deerpark at a proposed sensory garden being worked on by Prosper Meath. Big thanks to the outdoor staff in Meath Co Co for installing.’
