The Annual General Meeting of Whatton & Aslockton Playing Field Management Committee will take place at 7.30pm Tuesday 21st May 2019 at The Cranmer Arms, Aslockton.
Any resident of Aslockton, Scarrington or Whatton wishing to apply to be an elected member of the Committee is invited to attend.
The Management Committee have had a building inspection prepared on the pavilion situated on the playing field. The building has been deemed a risk to public safety and residents are requested to stay away from this part of the playing field. It is envisaged that area will be ‘roped off’ in the near future until improvements can be undertaken.
Funds are now available to go ahead with Phase 1 of the regeneration of the play equipment on the playing field. The Management Committee is currently waiting for a resolution to be passed by the Trustees and Parish Councils to sanction the works to go ahead. It is hoped that this will sanctioned after the Parish Council elections in May.
Funds have also been obtained to improve the condition of the pavilion. These funds are held by Rushcliffe Borough Council as they were dedicated by the developers of the new development on Abbey Lane under a Section 106 agreement. Rushcliffe Borough Council have been provided with plans to improve the pavilion and the Management Committee are awaiting a decision.
Rushcliffe Borough Council have adopted a Parish Tree Scheme as part of an initiative to increase the number of trees in the Borough. Aslockton Parish Council very kindly offered to dedicate their allocation to be planted on the playing field. These trees have now been planted.
Amongst the trees that have been planted are Oak, Willow, Field Maple, Wild Cherry, Crab Apple, Lime and a Horse Chestnut. The Horse Chestnut has been donated by a local resident.
The trees will eventually enhance and add to the character of the field.
