a new £70,000 multi-use games area (MUGA) has been officially opened in Conisbrough.

The MUGA, which has been in use on the Welfare Field, is funded jointly by Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd (WREN) and Conisbrough Forward and has taken around five years to come to fruition.

The area already very popular and used for netball, five-a-side, baseball and tennis.
