The children of Hopedale received an early Christmas present this year.
The provincial government has announced funding to improve the community’s playground.
Wayne Piercy is the AngajukKâk for the Hopedale Inuit Community Government.
He says the Provincial government has announced $15,000 for improvements to the community’s playground.
The funds come through the province’s 2010 Capital Grant Program.
It will be used to install fencing and new equipment.
The playground is located next to the Amos Comenius Memorial School.
Piercy adds they will discuss when to install the new equipment when they have their council meeting in January.
