Annual Parish Meeting (APM)

The Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Tuesday 21st May at 7.30pm with presentations on the pre-school, general environmental concerns and youth theatre and camera club. There will be refreshments afterwards.

This is not a Parish Council meeting but a meeting of the Parish that acts as the annual democratic point of communication.  The APM provides an opportunity for the electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish and is the forum that enables the Parish Council to explain what it has been doing over the last year.

Playpark Update

The park is now fully open again, the sandpit has been refreshed with new sand. Many thanks to all for helping with special mention to Cllr Peter Morgan for co-ordinating and shovelling,  Toby Elford (who put in hard labour emptying , removing old sand and then refilling the sand pit with fresh sand), Alastair Christie (who organised a source of great value sand from Parkers), and Craig Wells (who supplied the essential tractor power to get the sand to the sand pit).

Grass Cutting Schedule

Please be advised that the first grass cutting will take place on 5 April.

Pavilion Refurbishment

We’ve just completed the Pavilion refurbishment, which has given us a substantial upgrade of the facilities.

The refurbishment was part-funded by a LEADER grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (£49k), and the remainder from our New Pavilion Fund (£28k) and the Parish Council (£7.5k).

With many thanks to Des Lambert, who helped us navigate the grant application process, and to parish councillor Emma Elford, who led renovation programme, got the grants, liaised with everyone involved.

The refurbishment has included:

  • removal of the old kitchen to open up the space
  • re-positioning of a new  kitchen and utility room into the old committee room
  • recovering of the floor throughout
  • reconfiguring of the changing rooms
  • increased storage facilities
  • substantial replacing of rotten timbers throughout the infrastructure
  • replacement of multiple doors
  • replacement of window glass
  • part installation of new composite cladding and sofits
  • substantial re-plastering work throughout
  • roof repair.

Steve Bodsworth was the contractor. We owe him many thanks for doing a fantastic job to a very high standard and completing on time.

As with all building jobs, we found some unexpected problems along the way that Steve responded to quickly, which allowed us to keep on schedule.

Now the work is complete, it has highlighted other parts of the facility that are looking a bit tired. Plumpton Parish Council will be costing further work to maintain this valued facility within a long-term preventative maintenance programme.  We’ll provide further details in due course, later this year.
