Current News

The field between Clarrick Terrace and the sewage works has been identified as a possible site for allotments, although if this proves an acceptable choice to applicants access would have to be improved and additional parking provided.  Planning permission has been obtained for the site and an access agreement has now been negotiated.  The relevant leases have been drawn up and should be signed in the near future.  Instruction for the access gate has been given and once this is completed the short piece of track to the field will be built.

The play area in the park has been well used for many years, and as it is inevitably now showing signs of wear the Parish Council is considering plans for its refurbishment. Work has now been completed on the existing holes, but it is likely large areas will have to be replaced in the future.

There will be work done on the Pump Track from the 9-13 July as some sections are to be tarmacked.  During this work the track will be closed to bikers.
