CLOSURE AND DEMOLISHION OF SKATE PARK FACILITY

NOTICE FROM THE PARISH COUNCIL
CLOSURE AND DEMOLISHION OF SKATE PARK

At the last Parish Council meeting on the 3rd July 2018, the Parish Council voted to demolish and remove those parts of the skate park that were unsafe. It was anticipated that the quarter pipe at least could stay. However, subsequent inspection has shown that none of this equipment is safe for public use. With regret therefore, the whole of the skate park has been demolished. A substantial amount of food waste, litter and drug debris that had accumulated at that site has also been cleared away.

Looking to the future, the Parish Council recognises that this facility has been valued by many members of our community, and it may well be that a more suitable concrete facility may replace the old wooden skate park. The Parish Council have agreed to conduct a survey in the village to ascertain wishes and support for a new concrete skate park.

The cost of a concrete park will be in the region of £50K and we can apply to R.B.C. for 50% funding. The Parish Council would ask the local group who wished for the Skate Park to remain to come on board as a Working Group to help with fundraising should there be sufficient desire for this facility to be installed.

This will be a substantial project which will succeed only with the sustained support of the community.

Thank you

RUSHCLIFFE BOROUGH COUNCIL – HANDY HOUSEKEEPERS SERVICE TO HELP OUR ELDERLEY

RUSHCLIFFE BOROUGH COUNCIL – HANDY HOUSEKEEPERS SERVICE

Handy Housekeepers Help Home-Lovers

Rushcliffe CVS is excited to launch a new service which is called Handy Housekeepers. RCVS is providing help at home for a very reasonable cost and staff will carry out cleaning, washing, ironing, changing beds, shopping and light household tasks. Lifting heavy weights, gardening or carrying out any personal care won’t be provided. Staff are thoroughly vetted and insured and initially the service is available anywhere in Rushcliffe. The cost of this service is £15 per hour and pro rata for half an hour.

Handy Housekeepers is ideal for elderly people who can’t do as much as they used to do, but who are still house-proud or want to be independent.

Rebecca Archibald, service manager, said: “A recent survey demonstrated the need for this service and we contacted potential customers who were keen to join. Unlike other services, Rushcliffe CVS already has a bedrock of caring for the elderly people. We’ll expand the service as demand grows. We will visit people at home and tailor the service according to their requirements.”
