Introducing your new Playground Equipment

Further to earlier notices about the proposed new playground we are pleased to give everyone a sneak preview of the equipment which will be installed this week by who are working with the Parish Council to develop the playground – we hope you like what you see …. the first three pictures are table top games to test your young ones brains… the rest are activities to test their bodies



Update on the Re-opening of the Park and Playground

Please be aware that Cllrs have decided to keep the Brigg Lane Park closed until the new playground equipment has been installed.  Other work is also being carried out – cutting back of bushes and also repair of the fence of the all weather pitch in order to improve the visiting experience of those using the Park.

The work on the new playground equipment is scheduled to begin w/c 6th July 2020 and soon as the work is signed off, further information on the reopening of the park and playground will be issued.

The Parish Council thank residents for their patience and hope everyone enjoys the new playground once it is opened.  There will be a risk assessment put in place for anyone using the playground / park in light of the ongoing risk of Covid and to minimise the risk of infection.  This will be published shortly

Complaints of Parking on Pavements / Near to Junctions

The Parish Council has received several complaints from residents about cars being parked on pavements, causing problems for the elderly, disabled and people with pushchairs, having to to walk out onto the road.  This is an increasing problem throughout the village but particularly bad at the moment in Millfield Drive, and is especially difficult to understand when people have driveways which they are not using.

It is illegal to cause an obstruction on roads and pavements and near junctions (Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986) and residents parking on pavements and junctions can be reported to the police who can impose on the spot fines.

The Parish Council hopes this can be avoided and encourages all drivers to be considerate of others and not park on pavements or on the edge of junctions.


Thank you

New Playground Equipment

As many residents will know, last year, the Parish Council decided to invest in new playground equipment for the Brigg Lane Park, and is currently working with a local Company called ‘Ludus’ to make this happen.  Careful and effective financial management has allowed the Parish Council to budget for this project which we hope to have completed by the end of summer.

Of course at this time the playgrounds cannot be used, however, Cllrs feel that now is an ideal time to get the new equipment installed, so residents will see activity on the playground over the next few weeks and we look forward to a time when this will be open.

In the meantime, we shall feature some of the new equipment for the playground on the website over the next few weeks.

Cllrs would urge all residents to continue to observe the current restrictions put in place in line with Government legislation which prohibits the use of playgrounds in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
