Contractors have almost completed external and internal improvements to the pavilion. The work is of a very high quality and the contractors have totally transformed the appearance, condition and usability of the building.
Further updates to follow.
Proludic Uk have now been formally appointed to take the lead for the playground project. Proludic UK are a local company and their products etc can be viewed on the following website.
The Management Committee are now in the process of arranging dates for community and school consultations to progress the project.
Funds are now available to go ahead with Phase 1 of the regeneration of the play equipment on the playing field. The Management Committee is currently waiting for a resolution to be passed by the Trustees and Parish Councils to sanction the works to go ahead. It is hoped that this will sanctioned after the Parish Council elections in May.
Funds have also been obtained to improve the condition of the pavilion. These funds are held by Rushcliffe Borough Council as they were dedicated by the developers of the new development on Abbey Lane under a Section 106 agreement. Rushcliffe Borough Council have been provided with plans to improve the pavilion and the Management Committee are awaiting a decision.
Rushcliffe Borough Council have adopted a Parish Tree Scheme as part of an initiative to increase the number of trees in the Borough. Aslockton Parish Council very kindly offered to dedicate their allocation to be planted on the playing field. These trees have now been planted.
Amongst the trees that have been planted are Oak, Willow, Field Maple, Wild Cherry, Crab Apple, Lime and a Horse Chestnut. The Horse Chestnut has been donated by a local resident.
The trees will eventually enhance and add to the character of the field.
