Teen Scene and Footpath Update - June 2024

Work on the new play area and footpath of the recreation ground has seen a lengthy delay. 

Due to the severe wet weather over the winter, the area from the brook became flooded and the (muddy) field was badly damaged by construction machinery. 

Once the weather started to improve it came to light that additional groundworks were needed to make the area safe and level in preparation for new playground surface areas to be installed.

Contractors have recently returned to site to finish the project to the standards required and to make the area safe.

The Parish Council is disappointed the project has not met the time frames expected and apologise to all residents and users of the park for the unfortunate situation.

In the meantime …. the large majority of the field is still open for recreational use and dog walkers. Access is permitted via the black gate next to the Parish Council offices and the bridge/footpath from the station. The tennis courts, under 11’s playground and coffee chalet are also still open.
