Parks & Open Spaces

Play Area in School Playing Field

The playing field is for sole use of the school during school hours. Outside school hours and in the school holidays the play area may be used by parishioners and visitors to the village. Dogs are not allowed on the playing field at any time.

The Parish Council provides and maintains the play equipment - if you see a damaged piece of equipment please report it to the Parish Clerk.

The Pump Garden

The Parish Council owns a small piece of land on Church Street just up from Shortlands Close known locally as the Pump Garden because it is where one of the village's three public water pumps was sited. The pump is still there but not operable. For the Queen's Jubilee in 2002 the Parish Council installed a bench at the Pump Garden for walkers to stop at on their way up Church Street. In 2012 the area was cut right back to allow new planting to take place in spring 2013.

Other Land Maintained by the Parish Council

The Parish Council also maintains the following areas:

  • Area alongside Wappenham Road known locally as Jenners Piece.
  • The War Memorial
  • The area in front of the Reading Room.
