Progress Report

The tennis courts are in the process of being completely re-furbished, with new fencing, surfacing and nets. The 4th court is being redesigned as a multi-ball court, with a half-pipe for BMX bikes and skateboards. A teenage shelter is planned for nearby, with a second shelter in the playground.

A Sensory Garden has been under discussion and a site visit held but this is on hold at the moment.
We have applied for lottery funding, under the BBC’s ‘Breathing Places’ scheme, to adopt the area behind the playground as a conservation area.

We are still striving to get improvements made at Painesbrook Park and hope to learn shortly that the Council has allocated funding for refurbishments there.

We are also in the process of setting up a ParkWatch scheme in both parks.
