The Village Trust are advising that work on the replacement Nursery Building is expected to start before Christmas with completion during mid-summer 2015.
Meanwhile the Village Hall car park has now fully re-opened on completion of phase 2 of the repair work. As a result, there is a splendid new surface the whole length of the front of the building.
However, the project is not yet finished and the Trust is still welcoming donations to fund the repair and upgrade of the remaining areas.
Highwood Road – NFDC recycling bins.
To release space for much needed parking while construction work was undertaken NFDC removed the recycling bins. It had been hoped to return these at the end of September, however, since learning of the imminent further work on the nursery it was thought impractical to return them for just a few weeks.
NFDC have been invited to return the bins at the end of the work next summer but in the meantime, they are increasing the number of collections from the bins in the station approach.
Parish Council Playground Highwood Road
Since being re equipped some 2 years ago the playground was re–equipped it has proved unexpectedly popular. As a result, the grassed areas have become well worn and in need of repair and improvement. There will be a closure for 1 week starting 6th October to facilitate this.
