***********

Happy Easter from all at the council, let us hope that now with “unlocking” underway there is light at the end of the tunnel, and we can look forward to sharing the summer with our loved ones.

Thank you to all those who have put in suggestions for the use of the bowls green at Manor Park, the favoured use is for the installation of a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) providing an area in which to play games such as basketball, netball, cricket, football, etc. and some outdoor gym equipment to help with the health and well-being of our community. Other ideas were for a dog exercise area, it is planned for this to be included in the area of land to be transferred to the council on the Bishops Green development.
