Can you help with the Playing Field?


Broadmayne Playing Fields Association (BPFA) is a small group of volunteers, aligned with the Parish Council, and is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the Playing Field and all its facilities, including the Children’s Play Area, the football pitch and changing rooms, basketball court and tennis court in Cowleaze Road.

BPFA holds quarterly meetings and is in urgent need of a Chairperson as well as additional committee members. The position of Chairperson would suit someone who has a little time to spare to oversee the quarterly meetings, and help with the smooth running of the group.

The Playing Field is for the benefit of all residents and we are constantly looking for new volunteers to join the BPFA to help ensure the safe upkeep of all our Play and Sports facilities. It would only involve an hour or so of your time. Please consider whether you could contribute to this important asset of our community.

If you can help, please contact initially the Secretary (Andrew Cullen) on 07803 178313 , or the Treasurer (Rodger Williamson) on 01305 853056

Corner House Stores Refurbishment

What exciting news for the village – the Corner House Stores and Post Office is to be refurbished in order to maximise their service area and to stock new products.

We wish Michaela and her team all the best for the re-launch and for the future.

Unfortunately, it does mean that the Post Office will be shut from the 6th to the 18th November and the shop from the 11th to the 18th. A pop-up shop will sell basics from the alleyway beside the shop in the mornings – full details on the leaflet reproduced below.

Olds Garage Site

Building has begun at last.

The developers have informed us that they are beginning by building the curved terrace of three houses – these are the houses nearest to the Chalky Road corner.

They are awaiting a planning decision on an application to make small changes to the plans for the pair of semi-detached houses on the other part of the site.
