Residents of the development were also invited to attend the opening and visitors had the chance to test the playground for the first time. Once tired out, the children had their faces painted by a local artist, while parents grabbed a coffee and a chat with their neighbours.

Teresa Hall, Education Officer at the Ipswich Deaf Children’s Society, said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and loved being part of the opening ceremony.

“Georgia Hall lives on the development and is profoundly deaf as well as a cochlear implant user. She was so thrilled to be chosen to cut the ribbon and officially open the playground.”

Caroline Carter, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia, said: “We’re delighted to open the family playground to residents of Wolsey Grange and the surrounding community.
