Acreshort Community Park - for all of us


Acreshort Park is going to be the place to get together as a community. We have great plans for it's future, including:

  • Picnic Area (due to be completed February 2018)
  • Improved entrance (due to be completed Spring 2018)
  • Older Children's play equipment including a basket swing (hopefully during the summer of 2018)
  • Adult outdoor fitness equipment (in 2019, if not before - depending on funds raised)

We are planning a grand opening event late summer 2018 which may include a village show, so get your veggies and flowers looking fabulous. This will give us a chance to unveil the work already done and the plans for the future, offering villagers a chance to contribute with their ideas.

Other future activities that have been discussed include:

  • Community bulb planting event
  • Children's Nature Trail
  • Barbecue Area
  • Annual summer event

Our small committee of enthusiastic people, supported by the Parish Council, includes:

  • Pippa Birch
  • Melanie Burge
  • Liz Halliwell
  • David Price
  • Caroline Quarterly

We are so excited about this project. Our next meeting is on the 7th February - if you have any ideas or offers of help/finance, please do get in touch!
