We are all back into our autumn schedules so time for a 'Playground Update'.

Last week, a landscape representative from CWaC who has been working with the Parish Council and a representative group of parents from the community, presented a revised 'Playground Design Plan' to our Parish Council, the outline of which was well received by the Councillors.

The plan has been the outcome of a collaborative approach by many within the village and for that we thank you. The revised design plan seeks to incorporate the majority of the wish list items of those who completed the consultation survey. The design plan also includes additional seating and park furniture, improvements to the footpaths surrounding the play area, drainage works and landscaping. (Hopefully, therefore, we will not see future flooding of the adjacent area as shown in the image),

The provisional costings amount to approximately £130,000 and we are well on the way to meeting that target with contributions from the Parish Council, Section 106 Funding from Redrow, MBNA, Great Bear, TADs and The Party on the Park.

Our WREN application for £50,000 from Landfill tax monies, meeting the specified criteria, is almost complete as is the CWAC Rural Support Programme application for £7,000. Fingers crossed for success with those bids. With the above funding in place, we will have just £10,000 outstanding to raise as a community and we are full of exciting ideas to bridge the final gap.

With yet more fingers crossed, we are also hopeful that the construction programme might start in early spring — weather permitting of course!

Watch this space and thank you to everyone for your continued support.

Whoopee! I thought, a tax refund — then I realised that this email was odd, and I was sure that in the past if I had a tax refund I was informed by HMRC by letter and that it was automatic. I forwarded the said email to them — HMRC at phishing@HMRC.gsi.gov.uk the reply was swift emphasising that this was a scam and that this was not their procedure.
