Young supporters of �1million Waterlees playground to release book documenting the site’s development

YOUNG supporters of the new �1million adventure playground in the Waterlees area of Wisbech are set to release a book documenting the site’s development.

The Waterlees playground is being built on the area known as the Spinney, and the Wisbech Adventure Playground Documentary Group (WAPDoG) have been researching the area’s history.

The youngsters have collected pictures, photos, drawings, poems, stories and history about the site to produce a book that is being supported by Atelier East.

Brandon Mattless, lead young artist on the project, said: “I have really enjoyed this project and meeting different residents of all ages.

“I hope everyone gets something out of it and that everyone has enjoyed making it too.
