New play equipment on Sycamores Recreation Ground

Milton Parish Council and Milton Community Centre have been working together to upgrade and refurbish the Sycamores play area. At last, we are pleased to announce that it is open for use. Since the grass around the roundabout still needs to grow a little more this piece will remain shut but will also be open just as soon as the grass grows. Amongst the new equipment is a new wide slide on the bank and refurbishment of some of the older equipment has also been carried out.
The whole project has taken rather longer than anticipated mainly because of supply issues and Covid restrictions. Also midway through the project it was felt the surface needed additional refurbishment and so extra work was required to lay protective grass mats and of course it had to be re-seeded as well.
The cost for this project was shared equally by Milton Parish Council and Milton Community Centre. This sort of thing does not come cheap these days with just over £30,000 being spent on the project. However, we hope that it will give enjoyment to the children of Milton for many years to come.

Old Paddock Tree Planting

 

 

Thank you to all the volunteers  who braved the elements to help out with our first batch of native tree planting in the old paddock, doing a great job in planting 213 trees in total.

The Parish Council is endeavouring to identify locations suitable for the planting of additional trees, hoping to run more events in the future.

Should you have any suggestions as to locations please let the Parish Clerk know. clerk@miltonvillage.org.uk.

 

Old Paddock Tree Planting Plans

In 2019 Milton Parish Council (MPC) had been successful in applying for two tree packs from the Woodland Trust to transform the old paddock into a new woodland area, these have been delivered ahead of schedule.  
Tree planting is an important part of action on climate change and helps to protect and enhance Milton’s natural resources and rural character. Not only can trees make us feel more connected with our world, they are essential to the survival of our planet. They help to balance our carbon footprint, provide a habitat for pollinating insects and other wildlife, and support greater biodiversity.
 
MPC would like to invite residents and families of Milton to assist with the planting. To ensure compliance with COVID restrictions this would be conducted in pre-booked time slots which can been organised via the Parish  Clerk.
Tel: 01223 861447
Current intention would be to conduct the tree planting 14th – 15th November.
