WORK to improve the pathways in and order Wellington Park have been completed. 

The paths, which had become ridden with potholes, have been refurbished thanks to funding from Taunton Deane Borough Council and Wellington Town Council. 

Some areas of the award-winning park were closed to the public while works, costing £51,000, were carried out by contractors RW Gale. 

Cllr Vivienne Stock-Williams, Executive Councillor for Sports, Parks and Leisure, said: “We know how much quality green spaces matter to our residents and visitors so we want to ensure they look their best and are safe to use. I would like to thank everyone for bearing with us whilst the work was carried out.

"Wellington Park is a stunning attraction all year round thanks to the dedication of our staff and wonderful volunteers who maintain it to such a high standard. It now looks particularly smart ready for the summer.”
