MANCETTER PARISH COUNCIL’S COMMUNITY GRANT FUND
Applications must satisfy a mumber of conditions to be considered for a grant.
Bids should be made for projects which will be of benefit to the whole community or a specific group whose principal objectives are not those of a single individual. Applications will not be accepted where the benefit is to a single individual.
AREA FORUM GRANT
Mancetter Parish Council has been successful in its application for a grant from the North Warwickshire East Area Forum Fund.
The grant has helped to pay for the purchase of six trees which were planted in the cemetery. The trees were planted to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
In addition to the trees we will also be turning the adjoining field into a wild flower meadow. This field is next to the current burial area.
PUBLIC FOOTPATH FROM MONKS PARK LANE TO
Warwickshire County Council has now removed the Temporary Traffic Order closing Public Footpath AE108 between Monks Park Lane and Purley Chase Lane following temporary repairs being made to make the path safe.
The closure was required because of the likelihood of danger to the public as a result of a
collapsed culvert creating severe erosion.
It is likely a further temporary closure will take place when permanent repairs are being made.
Trilobite Fossil found in Purley Chase a few years ago
