The Parish Council are delighted to announce that the installation of the new equipment is finally complete and the accessible entry gate will be installed very shortly.  So, everyone will be able to come in and enjoy themselves on all the equipment!   UPDATE...a couple of surfacing issues are in the process of being sorted...we hope to be fully operational very soon and apologise for any disappointment experienced by not having all the equipment accessible.

GORSEY PIECE – work party achievements!


The picnic table and the bench have both been re-sited to provide a more open and safer situation for visitors to the Nature Reserve; safety matting is in place to reduce the chances of a muddy area under the table; nettles, hogweed and brambles have all been cut back; the bench has been moved to give a better view overlooking the valley and new safety railings in front of the bench will prevent toppling into a dip.


Many thanks to Dan Bradshaw, Cllr Paul Roberts and Cllr Simon Bullas (not forgetting the Parish Warden Jonathan Mitchell) for all their hard work
