On Sunday 5th March Cheddar played its part in the national Great British Spring Clean event. Right across the country community groups set about collecting litter and tidying up their local areas. In Cheddar parish councillors, members of the community and a keen group of lads from the 1st Cheddar Scouts set off in three teams from Kings Leisure Centre equipped with bags, hi viz jackets and litter pickers provided by Sedgemoor District Council. In just over an hour they collected more than a dozen bags of discarded bottles, cans, card and general rubbish from the Strawberry Line, Station Road and the path behind the school to Draycott Park. Parish Council Chairman Peter Council thanked all those who took part, adding “Cheddar is such a beautiful place; let’s try to keep it looking nice. Use the litter bins or take your rubbish home, then we’ll all enjoy our village more.”

Safety net at Sharpham Road children’s play area

The blue netting at the children’s play area at Sharpham Road, which had been left in a corner of the play area having been taken down by unknown person/s, has now gone missing.  

If you know of its whereabouts, please return it for the safety of the children of Cheddar to the Pavilion or to the parish council offices in Church Street.  

The netting was there to prevent stray cricket balls from coming into the play area and the parish council would very much like to see it returned or be made aware of its whereabouts.  We would be grateful of any assistance that parishioners can give.

Draycott Road Play Area

 

Draycott Road Play Area, Cheddar

 

The play area in Draycott Road, Cheddar is set for a £19,000 make-over.

Draycott Road has a small park which requires renovation. Works will commence on 23rd May 2017, resulting in the play area being closed for approximately 3 weeks, subject to favourable weather conditions.

A new triple swing consisting of a basket, junior and toddler seat will be installed alongside a rotational climbing net, spring see-saw, whale rocker, play panels, two new benches and a refurbished multi-play unit. New safety surfacing will also be provided beneath the items of equipment.

Sedgemoor’s Clean Surroundings team will be creating a second access point at the north end of the play area to improve safety and enable better access.

The project is being funded from Sedgemoor’s Parks Development budget and RLT2 developer contributions which Cheddar Parish Council agreed at Full Council should be used to support the refurbishment of the play area.
