On 9th April 2017 the Parish Council proudly opened a new playground on The Green, Glapwell. The project was made possible with a cheque for £20,000 from the Derbyshire Environment Trust and also from money raised by local people at a number of events.

Trevor Witts, Chair of Trust joined the fun and handed over the cheque. Councillor Ann Syrett, leader of Bolsover District Council also attended.

The opening was followed by an Easter Egg Hunt organised by members of the Glapwell Community Development Group. Over 40 children, and their families took part, and each of them were rewarded with an Easter Egg.

Everyone enjoyed a buffet lunch hosted by the Mad Hatter and Easter bunny.
