8th May 2020
We are hoping to bring the community together for the 75th Anniversay of VE Day - the day peace emerged after nearly six years of war and represents an important milestone in our history.We cannot let this day pass without reflection on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through this dark period.
8th May 2020 will be an international celebration of peace – a time to remember, reflect and pay tribute to the millions who played such a vital part in achieving it.

There has been some confusion of late regarding our play area names! We thought it would be good to list what we have and why it's called what it is! I hope this information helps.
A map of the village with all road names (both old and new) is available to collect from the CPC office.
Conigre play area is located within the Playing Fields, Station Road. This is our largest play area and maintained by CPC. It is called Conigre because originally there were ponds in this area which were known as "Conigre ponds" - hence the play area name! This play area has a mixture of baby and junior equipment, teen equipment and equipment for mixed abilities, picnic tables, benches and litter bins. Signs on each entry gate explain the rules of the play area – no dogs etc. Just outside of the fencing of this play area is the fitness equipment for all to use.
St Andrews play area is located in Upperfields, which is off St Andrews Road. This is a smaller play area with equipment for the younger ages to enjoy, picnic table, benches and bins. This area is managed and maintained by CPC. A sign on the entry gate explains the rules of the play area.
Old Kiln Lakes play area is in Old Kiln lakes! The equipment is for all ages and abilities. This area also has our wooden art structures for the children to climb over and enjoy. Also a picnic table, seating and litter bins are in the area. Alongside the play area is a large playing field. This area is managed and maintained by CPC. A sign on the entry gate explains the rules of the play area.
White's Field does not have a play area but it does have the Multi Use Games Area (known as the MUGA) This area is fenced in and has lighting. It is for use by all ages. It cannot be booked or reserved and the gates are not locked. It has goal posts, basketball hoops etc with a astro turf type base. Also in this area are the two ping pong tables for everyone to use, picnic tables, benches and a youth shelter. This area is managed and maintained by CPC.
Woodgreen Square play area is within the new Taylor Wimpey "Carriages" development. This equipment is for all to use and enjoy. This area is managed and maintained by Taylor Wimpey. Any new play areas which are planned within the current ongoing developments, are for everyone, and will be maintained and managed by the management companies directly, not CPC.
All of the play areas managed by CPC have a full annual inspection by an independent body, plus CPC run daily, weekly and monthly checks to ensure the equipment is safe to use. When we find an issue, a piece of equipment may be closed off – this is for good reason.
Litter is always an issue in any of these areas – there are adequate and ample litter bins all around – please use them.
