Youngsters have worked up a sweat by testing out their village's new £60,000 adventure playground.

The fully-equipped playground in Long Hanborough, near Woodstock, has been built after a four-year fundraising appeal by villagers.

The ribbon was cut by Long Hanborough parish councillor Mary Twiss.

Appeal vice-chairman Alison Feast said: "The playground is really big, and many people are surprised we have got something like it in a village like Hanborough. The children adore it and raced to get on it as soon as the ribbon was cut. It is a real asset to the village - not just for those people that have children now - but a long-term project."

The money came from fundraising events, donations by local businesses and grants from the parish council and West Oxfordshire District Council.
