West End Play Area

The PC wished to thank all the children who had submitted ideas for improving the play area. They were extremely interesting and detailed. It was agreed that the play area needing improvement and the clerk had secured just over £2000 in commuted sums and a potential donation from County  Cllr. Andy Paraskos (NYCC). Whilst the PC would help as much as possible, assistance from local residents in applying for grants would be most welcome as these can be very time consuming.

In the short term, it was agreed to reinstall the basketball hoop as soon as possible.
