Latest info @ top, oldest @ bottom.
  • 2005 - December : Great News ! We've received confirmation of a successful request to SITA to provide the majority of the funds required for the addition of a path between Starbold Court & the Longdon Road car park.
    This will enable the full circuit that was on high on the list of requirements when we did the survey of local park users / residents.
    To complete the funding of the path we need to raise the remaining 5,000 ourselves.
    To do this we have decided to ask for donations which will be used to buy bricks which will be used along the edge of the path. See separate "Donate a Brick" page for more details & an application form for those interested.
