Croughton Play Park Project Update
24th June 2017

Our Croughton Play Park planning application was thankfully approved!  The level of community support for the project was clearly represented in the planning report. Thank you to those who made your support known via the South Northants Council planning portal, it made a real difference.

We’ve had a couple of recent grant applications fall through, but we will not let that dampen our enthusiasm. Some fun events to watch out for in the coming months: Car wash, 1st July @Black Bird. “Schools Out for Summer” children’s disco, 21st July @Village Hall. Curry & Quiz night, date TBD. Barn dance, date TBD (autumn).

Watch out for an exciting opportunity to personally invest in a little piece of your park. For example we will have a limited number of memorial bench seats available, or perhaps personalising a swing seat is more your style. More to come soon.

Call for musicians
24th June 2017

Do you know of a band or solo artist who might like to play at the Croughton Beer Festival on September 16th? Local band ‘BackBeat’, who kept us entertained last year, will hopefully be returning. And we are keen to add other acts to the line-up. So if you are interested or have ideas please do contact Claire on 01869 810987 or Martin on 01869 810721.
