Naunton Playground project
Type your paragraph here.
The parish of Naunton is situated in the Cotswold Hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is located around 12 miles east of Cheltenham and five miles west of Stow-on-the-Wold, and is set on the floor of the Windrush Valley with the river running through it. The parish has a population of around 350 people. The present day village has many thriving societies and clubs, an historic Dovecote, and is a favourite with walkers as many long-distance footpaths ramble through the village. Much of the village falls within the Naunton Conservation Area.
The active Parish Council has five members who are dedicated to maintaining the natural beauty of the Parish, having input on planning development, planning for emergencies and self-help, highway and traffic matters as well as the recreation field and playground area.
The parish is represented on Cotswold District Council by Richard Keeling, and on Gloucestershire County Council by Mark Mackenzie-Charrington. Click here to see the last report from departing Cllr Nigel Moor.
Naunton Parish Council is excited to have started a project to improve the playground area of the recreation field by installing new equipment and better fencing as well as a picnic area. The Council has committed funds to the project and has set up a Spacehive page to collect pledges and donations, as well as to attract matched funding from grant providers. Spacehive matches projects with funders and Naunton's project has been matched with Cotswold District Council, which has pledged £8,000 provided the remains of the funding becomes available from other donors.
Please visit theNaunton Playground Spacehive pageto contribute to the new equipment and layout of the playground and to see how the project is going. NPC would like to send a big thank you to everyone who has already generously pledged and/or donated to the fund as well as to future supporters.
