OPEN SPACE PROJECT
The purchase of the land adjoining the recreation field, which is behind the row of houses known as "The Hedge Rows", is now complete. The lease between the parish council and the recreation field management committee (RFMC ) will be finalised as soon possible.
The first stage of work on this land to create allotments has also taken place. The RFMC would very much like to hear your thoughts on the rest of the land and we invite and welcome your ideas. Please could we take these in the form of emails or letters. We will then collate these suggestions and convene a parishioners’ consultation meeting to discuss options. Click here to see the location of the New Land (next to the rec, in front of the new allotments, and behind the Hedgerow houses and the rec car park. It's roughly half an acre.).
We may be able to accommodate several ideas within the space and of course there may be things that we are unable to deliver as regard space or other obstructions. I urge you all to be creative in your thoughts and to participate. We don’t have many opportunities like this so we must make the most of them.
Please may we have your suggestions by the 20th December by email email@example.com or pop suggestions into the letter boxes at Fox Hollow , or Church Cottage.
Vicky Higgins, Chair of the RFMC
This letter has also been delivered on paper to every house in the parish, as well as the village Facebook.
The community café in the church is open 9am to 4pm Monday-Friday with very reasonably priced refreshments. When no-one is present, please feel free to go in and serve yourself.
Please take the time to visit our new community facilities. We look forward to seeing you.
The café will be CLOSED from 22nd December. Open again on Monday 6th January.
