Parish Council Plans to revive the Ridgeway playground

The playground was given to the parish many years ago though many residents don’t know it exists. The Council plans to change the site into an area for all residents to enjoy and they want to hear what people think.

There is a questionnaire available at the Nag’s Head and the Village Hall or online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KYK2GW3

Forms should be completed by 10th April and hard copies returned to the Nag’s Head or the Village Hall.

A workshop will be held at the Village Hall on 24 April from 10am. This will be led by Wyld Edges, a local company who have been helping with potential designs.

A proposal shall be submitted to the Parish Council in June
