Play Area Relocation
In order to facilitate the relocation of the Village Shop to Boldre War Memorial Hall, it is necessary to renew and replace the current play area. Follow the progress for the play area relocation project here.
November 4th was a busy day for Councillors as the old playground equipment was removed from the site of the new hall. The old equipment has been cleared and most of the old rubber safety matting (so much matting?!!) has been lifted. it was freat to be working in collaboration with members of the Boldre War Memorial Hall committee to turn the hall and playing field area into a wonderful village "hub". Exciting changes!
Since our last update, BPC has been out on tour of our local fetes and letting everyone know about our plans!
Pylewell Fete - June 20th
After setting up in a misty rain, the sun shone at Pylewell! A steady stream of Parishioners visited us, and our colouring table proved extremely popular with the children.
Welcome to the first in a series of articles covering the relocation of the current play area at the Boldre Recreation ground. These articles will provide background on the need to relocate the play area, information about the current plans, fundraising and progress as the project is delivered.
Why Do We Need To Relocate The Playground?
The village shop is nearing the end of its lease and this will not be renewed. In order to preserve a key feature of our village, Pilley Community Stores Limited and the Boldre War Memorial Hall have come to an agreement to create a building to house the shop at the site of Boldre Hall. You can view the planning application for the new building here. The new building will need to be sited where the current play area is so it will need to be moved. As the play equipment is owned by the Parish Council, the Boldre War Memorial hall Committee approached Boldre Parish Council and requested their assistance in relocating the play area. The current play area is well used, but the equipment is aging so the Parish Council intends to take this opportunity to replace the current equipment and incorporate it with the existing kick wall and larger swings already present on the recreation ground.
