All organisations are currently experiencing the cost of ensuring their facilities are COVID safe and the popular Newmarket Playgroup is no exception.

The park committee were recently dismayed to discover that their hand-sanitising units were maliciously emptied.

The Western Isles Lifestyle Lottery Team were equally as dismayed and stepped in with funding to ensure the park was maintained safe for everyone by replenishing their supplies.

Cally and Janet Paterson handed over a cheque for £250 to Committee members Murray and Louis of Newmarket Playpark Association.
