ASTROP PLAY AREA:

New Play Equipment - Vandalism has taken place and I apologise to any families who have been disappointed if their son or daughter has been unable to use the equipment. We have removed any sharp pieces today and I'm told it is now safe to use. This has been reported to the police this evening. The work carried out today is only an interim measure until the recommended RoSPA company can carry out repairs.
PARKING: I have received some concerns relating to inconsiderate parking and mainly associated with school pick-up/drop-off times. Chenderit have agreed to send out a reminder to parents/carers/pupils regarding this issue and I have updated the Police and asked their advice.
PARISH OFFICE: Remains closed this week and possibly next during the day due to unforeseen circumstances. However, emails, post and telephone calls will be answered/actioned as soon as possible. Your co-operation and understanding would be appreciated - thank you.
