Thank you to all 44 people and the one dog that came along to help us tidy up the village today! And also thank you to Sharon Harding, the Brownies, Guides and Rainbows for their cakes. And the merry band of peeps who set up and took down the gazebo. I think you'll all agree it's been a successful haul?! #GBSPRINGCLEAN#greatbritishspringclean#wiltshire#villagelife
Should you see posters that are out of date, please do not hesitate to remove them, along with any of the annoying little paper corners that are left too! Please leave alone any posters that are still in date and legible. If you are unsure, then please contact us on Facebook or via the Clerk's email address or telephone and we will send a Parish Councillor to have a look. The more residents that join in, the tidier things will be - the Parish Council are but few! ...
Acreshort Community Park features in the Wiltshire Times.
Please note that we haven't secured ALL funding - we are still very much seeking more funding and will be sending out sponsorship packs for local companies in the very near future!
You are allowed up to 10 votes and can use them all on one project - please share with family and friends and see if we can get into the final!
We want to provide an outdoor community space in the village that is all inclusive, including activities for older children, adults and families.
We are a small group of motivated volunteers driven to see this project succeed. We have been fundraising for a while but need the injection of these extra Aviva funds to finally realise some key elements of our plan.
We have already raised the funds to create a picnic area, provided fencing and car parking, and developed a planting and maintenance schedule that has seen the field turn into a usable area.
The next phase of the plan is to provide a range of play and fitness equipment and tidy up the entrance - the equipment alone will cost us upwards of £40,000.
We plan to hold a summer celebration in 2018 to officially open the park and new equipment, as well as providing a springboard to start our future plans - including nature trails, BBQ area, community building, group fitness events and anything else our lovely villagers feel the need for, in a beautiful outdoor setting that is to become the focus for the health & wellbeing of the village.
Please help us realise the next phase of our plans!
Please email the Clerk if you would like any changes
