COVID GRANT FUNDING SUCCESS

The Parish Council successfully applied for a grant of £500 to help the residents of Newborough and Borough Fen follow COVID safety guidelines. The Council have purchased posters to help promote this, as well as a tablet for community use with mobile WIFI to help people connect with friends and family and combat loneliness. This will be available to temporarily borrow for anyone needing it. We are also distributing 25 goodie bags to vulnerable members of the community with the help of the volunteer group!!

December 2020 – Temporary Village Sign

The village sign has a temporary replacement, which was erected over the weekend by members of the Parish Council following the original ‘Newborough’ sign being damaged, and subsequently removed this year.

This temporary measure will remain in place pending any future Council meetings where discussions surrounding regenerating this corner on Guntons Road will be addressed.

November 2020 – Plough Lane Playing Field

The play area at Plough Lane has been upgraded by the City Council, as a result of the Parish Council leading in these improvements. Currently equipment has been repainted and new play ‘mushrooms’ have been installed for the children, as well as a new bin. Further improvements are in the pipeline, with a picnic bench having been delivered to the park and a table tennis table.
