It seems that there is a sum of £20,000 from GWR towards the cost of the playpark but this money is time limited to April 2019.

@Willkiner - yes you are correct. There is indeed some time-limited money available. Issues concerning money were supposed to be talked about in part B of the last town council meeting but some councillors seemed to forget that (or perhaps they didn't ........?) and spoke about it in the open part of the meeting.

I have just emailed the town clerk asking where and when this new lawn working party convenes and also who sits on it. I'll let you know what info I get back.

I'll message you Pea Pod with a recommendation. Look in your in box for my email.

Anyone know what the grapevine is saying about the progress of this application? The last thing put into the public domain by TDC is dated a couple of months back.
