Dear Sirs

I am writing to let the Parish Council know that the County Council's car park off The Green in Willington will be shutting for a week to enable us to resurface the parking area and approach road. The original surfacing was laid in the 1970s and is now a patchwork of temporary repairs. The original tarmac is so worn and cracked that new potholes are developing at a rapid rate after existing ones are patched up. We are concerned that the state of the surface could result in damage to the wheels or suspension of vehicles using the car park and it would be better to lay out a new surface rather than continue with annual patching up.

The work will be to plane off the old cracked and potholed surface across the entire car park and approach road from The Green, to lay a new tarmac surface and to then remake the markings to show the parking bays, directional arrows, yellow lines and cross hatching. In order to do this it is necessary to completely close the car park and access road, although emergency services will be able to use it if needed due to incidents on the railway line or the canal. The rest of the picnic site will remain open with access on foot from Canal Bridge and the canal towpath

The work is to be carried out from Monday 22nd June and should be finished by the end of Friday 26th June.

We will also be notifying adjacent residents & businesses on The Green and Canal Bridge, Network Rail, the Canal and Rivers Trust and others who may be affected. I have ordered some advance warning notices to put up on site later next week and the Willington Highways Depot, who will be carrying out the works will place closure notices out some days before work starts.

I would be grateful if you could also publicise this locally on your website and Facebook page

South Derbyshire Summer Playscheme cancelled

This summer's summer activities for schoolchildren in South Derbyshire have been cancelled due to social distancing restrictions.

The scheme was due to take place between the 27 July and 28 August and would have offered over 100 sessions across the District.

Councillor Dan Pegg, Chair of Active South Derbyshire, said:

"It is with real sadness that we have made the decision to cancel this year's Summer Playscheme. More »

"I know it is very popular with children from across South Derbyshire and we looked at all the options before very reluctantly reaching the conclusion that it wasn't possible to deliver the activities while following social distancing guidelines.

"I hope that children in South Derbyshire will continue to remain active this summer while continuing to remain safe and socially distanced."

The South Derbyshire Summer Playschemes have been running for well over a decade and are a very popular service, with over 6,000 young people attending sessions each year which are delivered with funding from parish councils and the South Derbyshire Community Safety Partnership.

Active South Derbyshire plans to reschedule a number of these cancelled sessions, once restrictions are lifted, on evenings, weekends and during half term holidays.

To keep up to date with our service and any future sessions, check the Active South Derbyshire Facebook page: @ActiveSouthDerbyshire.
