Subways in Torfaen Receive Makeover
Staff and volunteers with Torfaen Play Service are bringing a splash of colour to underground walkways this summer.
The team recently brightened up a subway in Greenmeadow making it more attractive for the public to use.
Torfaen Play plans to make-over 6 similar subways across Torfaen by the end of the summer.
The project is part of a Welsh Government initiative to encourage children to play and be more active by creating safe, attractive routes.
Executive Member for Neighbourhood Services, Councillor Mandy Owen said, “Once again the play service has come up trumps in supporting the communities and brightening up these uninviting spaces. We have received numerous comments from passer-by’s about how this had brightened up the area and it fantastic to see so many young people getting involved.
For me it has been an absolute pleasure to work with our play volunteers on this project and I look forward to doing more in September across Torfaen. It makes such a difference to our communities and local areas.”
