Arising from comments at the parish meeting recently, a proposal was submitted by a resident outlining a plan to improve the playing fields in Bury Lane. At the same time a grant giving body SITA announced a new one off opportunity to fund improvements to community spaces!
An application has now been submitted based on work undertaken by one of our residents. Adjudication will not be until mid August. A proposed plan for the community field will be published on this site shortly.
If we are successful then we will be needing volunteers to play their part in this project which will benefit everyone, young and old alike, in the village.
Unfortunately our grant application was not accepted – no specific reason was given but it appears that the fund was over subscribed and we were not high enough up the list. We will look for alternative funds.
A search for alternative funding continues.
