UPDATE 17th May – work continues on the tiered seating and we apologise that it’s taking a little longer than expected, not helped by some poor weather. But things are progressing well and we expect it to be completed by the end of Wednesday 22nd May. The area will remain cordoned off for a week or so afterwards to allow the turf time to settle.
We’re thrilled to confirm that work to create the tiered seating facing The Roundhouse has begun today and is expected to take around 1 week. The area will be fenced off during the work and we apologise for any inconvenience if you are intending to visit the Park during this time.
A local groundworks company will construct 4 tiers either side of a new central set of steps, cut out of the bank and supported by oak sleepers. A low fence will surround the top and outer sides of the tiers.
This project has been a Parish Council plan for a while and now that more and more people use the Park, and following the success of recent events in The Roundhouse, we feel that now is the time to implement the plan.
The cost of this project will be entirely met by recent grant bids won by the Council.
