NEW HALL

The hall architect is working on the design of the new hall proposed for Harrow Meadow. Input from the community concerning the facilities desired will be really helpful. The survey also invites comment regarding the usage of Harrow Meadow which is owned by the Parish Council.

Thank you to all who have completed the design survey the closing date for which has now passed. The results are available here.

There will be another survey in the near future about the need for a community hall, the results from which will feed into the planning application. This will concern support for a community hall and its activities and its siting at Harrow Meadow.
