Community Litter Pick Saturday 1st April 2023.  

Sixteen residents turned out for the village litter pick, collecting around 15 bags of rubbish.

Consultation re: Young children's play area at St. Clare Court (off Julian Way).

Update April 2023.  A Project/Bid has been submitted to GYBC Planning to use S106 money (developers contribution) to upgrade the play area at St. Clare Court.  We await the outcome. 

We welcome your comments on the following suggestion to upgrade the play area.

1.The swings are in need of refurbishment, and possibly one of the seats made into a flat seat, rather than the existing two baby swings.

2.The slide and climbing frame are at the end of their life and cannot be refurbished any further (as advised by GYBC).

3.If the slide and climbing frame are removed, we could bid for more modern play equipment such as wooden balance beams, “A” climbing frame, train (ode to the old station at Hopton), stepping stones etc.

4.The whole area could be repurposed as it is a long strip of green area with trees and the new play equipment could extend further along the area. The trees would remain in situ.

5. A seat or two for adults to watch over their children.

The play area is for 18 months to 6/7 years and is well used.

GYBC is holding £29,400 which is money paid by developers from new housing in Hopton. The money can only be spent on recreational facilities (nothing else). The money would cover the cost of items 1 to 5 with sufficient maintenance money retained by GYBC for 10/15 years.

If the play area is not upgraded, it will likely be lost in the next year or two, and the equipment simply removed by GYBC, when it reaches the end of its life span.

The Parish Council would like to know what you think about this specific proposal to upgrade the play area.

Please e-mail your comments to asap. Thank you.
