Sudbury’s Belle Vue Park has been given a £20,000 investment boost from Babergh District Council.

The authority has spent the money on repairing, refurbishing and refencing one of the tennis courts.

A council spokesman said: “Most of the work has been completed, except the resurfacing which we are hoping to finish on Tuesday, but this really depends on the weather.

“However, we are confident all work will be finished by the end of the week.”

Park users who use scooters and roller skates on the skate park are being asked to give their views about developing this area, which will have work carried out on it in the future.

The spokesman added: “There is a large square area in this location which is already used by local skaters.

“We are keen to develop this area for their use and, as such, we would like any of those who already use the space, or indeed other keen skaters or skate boarders, who might like to either form themselves into a user group, or alternatively provide feedback on an individual basis as to how they would like to adapt the site for their activity.”

The park got a boost in funding three years ago when new play equipment was provided for younger children, including a new sand pit and slide.

New facilities also included a zip wire – championed by Sudbury councillor John Sayers.
