We are delighted to announce that the new play equipment has been installed in the play area at Cutthorpe. The project aimed to provide an additional more challenging piece of play equipment in the confines of the current play area; the Parish Council were mindful of the welfare of children in the village and wished to encourage greater outdoor play in a safe but challenging environment. The equipment was initially chosen following a number of community consultation events; now in situ it seems to have been very well received by local children and is receiving considerable usage.
£1000s of pounds were raised locally and the Parish Council would like to thank all those involved in the fund raising. The Parish Council also sought funds from grant funding bodies
Viridor Credits Environmental Company was established in 2001 to distribute funding via the Landfill Communities Fund. The project has received £9000 funding from Viridor Credits through the LCF.
