The Parish Council are now in a position to start planning the renovation of the area of ground opposite the church and on the junction of Guntons Road and Soke Road, which we know requires updating and regenerating.
Before plans are finalised, the Parish Council would like to hear from you, the residents, for your views and ideas of what the finished project should include or look like.
We would like as many ideas as possible in order to transform this area into a focal point for the village, and will take all ideas or views into consideration to shape the final outcome.
In the first instance please send you views to:-
by 10th February 2021, in readiness for the next Parish Council meeting to discuss this project.
November 2020 – Fernie Close Playing Field.
The Parish Council are currently working on plans to upgrade the Fernie Close playing field with new play equipment and pathways. The Council agreed on their final choice following a successful tender bid placed by Wicksteed, and plans are underway to have the new and improved play park completed for the Spring of 2021!!
Please keep on the lookout for future updates.
November 2020 – Plough Lane Playing Field
The play area at Plough Lane is currently being 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, such as a picnic bench and table tennis table.
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.
