Somersham Parish Council is excited to announce that through County Councillor Steve Criswell, the Parish Clerk Penny Bryant with the assistance of the Deputy Clerk Megan Blewett, submitted a successful funding bid to the Communities and Partnerships Committee and were awarded £32,560.
This means the extra money allows the parish council enough funds to install a concrete skate ramp, a ‘Witches Hat’ piece of play equipment and free to use fresh air fitness gym equipment for the Norwood Play Field.
The installation of all the above items means we can cater for the majority of our community from the age of 4 years and upwards.
We will keep you updated with the progress of works during these restricted times but our aim is to have everything installed as soon as we practically are able.
Penny Bryant, Somersham Parish Clerk
