Village Hall Complex - Centenary Lounge (left); Village Hall (right)
Work on a mains gas installation, new heating system and improved insulation for the Village Hall complex is now underway and is scheduled to finish on 28th August. The Village Hall will be out of commission during the day (until 4.30pm) in the meantime, the Centenary Lounge until 24th July. The Feignies Room and Council office should be unaffected. We apologise for any inconvenience, but hope that all concerned will appreciate the need for this project and the long term benefits. Click here to see previous items.
Activity park proposals - latest
At a meeting on 23rd June, the Parish Council's Planning committee decided to object to a planning application (click here for details) for an activity park on the Rectory field. The decision was based entirely on planning criteria, and the objection relates solely to the application as it stands, not to the proposals for an activity park as such. The final decision on the application will be made by Rushcliffe Borough Council. Turn to Page 2 for previous items. Please watch this space for news of any further developments.
Hanging baskets brighten up village
Once again, the Parish Council has arranged for hanging baskets to brighten up the village during the summer months. Thanks are due to the various businesses which have agreed to make a contribution towards the cost. There are seventy-nine baskets in total at various locations around Keyworth, and these will be kept watered throughout June, July and August. Let's hope that we get plenty sunny weather to make the summer scene complete.
Police liaison meetings - anything you want us to raise?
Parish Councillors meet with the local beat officer every month or so, to discuss crime trends and policing issues affecting Keyworth. If there are any issues you would like raised at these meetings, please feel free to email us...your emails will be passed on to the relevant Councillors, and discussed at the next meeting.
