THIS IS WHERE OUR GRANT FOR THIS WORK HAS COME FROM.
This will pay for a fitness circuit made from crushed brick around the outside of the playing field, with gym equipment dotted around the circuit. The equipment is robust and is made for all ages to enjoy. The money will also buy some trees, some benches, and wild meadow flowers.
If all goes to plan work should commence mid to late summer this year and be completed by around October 2011.
This being the case there will be some temporary disruption to the car park and there will be vehicles on/off the field. It will not interupt access to the recreation area and the equipment within there, the Playbuilder site down the field should also be accessible most of the time.Please bare with us as this work is carried out as it will be worth it when it is completed.
