Recreation Area

One of the major projects arising from our Parish Plan is development of the recreation ground around the clubroom. The aim of the proposals for the recreation ground is to provide a focus for our community, a meeting place for anyone and everyone: individuals, small groups, families and friends, the whole village and more.

Recreation Ground clearance and Tree Planting 2012

Lots of people helped out over three working weekends during March to clear the area of scrub behind the clubroom, to prepare the space for the development of the new recreation area.

We had been successful in our application to the Woodland Trust to be included in their special grants of tiny trees in honour of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, so we had 105 trees to plant. It was great to see families present and the children of the village planting the trees. 45 of the trees were suitable to be planted as hedges and 17 as trees in the recreation area.

The others are being sited in different locations around the village, including the churchyard, all in public areas so they can be shared by all. We were also given a special royal oak, which will be planted by the Chairman of the Parish Council in a corner of the village green, to replace the silver jubilee tree which didn't last 35 years!

Coffee Morning 2011

On Saturday 16th July FFIG hosted a coffee morning in the Clubroom to provide an opportunity for everyone in the village to come along and see ideas about how we might develop our recreation ground and to give input and help make the decisions. Attendees were asked to complete a questionnaire to give their opinions on the many decisions which need to be taken. This input is really important to shape the design of the area to make sure it best meets the needs and preferences of our community.
