After the planning delay regarding vehicular access to the allotments. Avtar dropped the kerbs ready for the Hoggin Road allowing access to the allotments. Normally, allotments are managed by the Parish Council, but as we know they have to be handed over following completion for this to happen.
Very pleased to be able to report that the Tennis Courts have started. The guys were removing the waste vegetation and preparing the surface by scrapping a layer of tarmac off. Lutyens Court has scaffolding erected as windows are being systematically replaced. Godfrey Place is still being prepared for tarmac on the 29th (scheduled for […]

I will upload the article and the photos when I find them. Consequently, Jason Corban who was on the Parish Council (PC) at the […]
The tennis courts will be cleared of debris on the 23rd April 2019. Resurfacing and fencing is planned from the 2nd May 2019. Which in summary means the PUBLIC OPEN SPACE programme has begun. Good news indeed…
