Rec Field viewLatest News  (December 2021)

New Open Space
As facebook followers will be aware, there has been concern about the new route we want people to take for walking through the area, reinforced by storm Arwen bringing down a branch close the gate in the field next door. The safety of the ash trees in the hedge on the north of the space is being assessed and we will delay the move of the kissing gate until that is resolved. You may want to avoid walking under the ash trees until then. The fenced area is destined to become a play area, from which dogs must be excluded for health reasons, so please do not exercise or walk your dog in the fenced area.

By the way, the ash trees around the rec itself have already been assessed and are OK for now.

I am struggling to convince myself that I can put together a planning application for the play area which complies with the incredibly complicated rules and which will get the approval of Mendip (my record to date is 0-1). If there is anyone out there with relevant knowledge and experience we would be VERY grateful for your help. Contact me on the number below.

Bonus Club
The winners in November were Neville & Hazel Park and Margaret and Brian Loten. They have their £20 prizes.

Wreath Making
It’ll be late in the day when this comes out, but there may be slots open. Book your wreath making session by calling Vanessa on 0780 1235490. The sessions are in the hall on Sat 4th of December 2-4pm and Sun 5th Dec 9.30 – 1130am.

Take care, and keep enjoying the rec.
