Rearsby Bench Project

Following the success of the recent bench installations on the Conker field and Playing field we are now looking at phase two of the bench project:

Five locations have been identified and the Clerk will be writing to LCC and certain residents to advise of our plans.

1 Bleakmoor close green
2 opposite the allotments
3 Preaching stone
4 outside Rearsby Residential home
5 opposite Horse & Groom

Village Bench Project – Update

The Parish Council are pleased to confirm work has been completed on the installation of the first four benches as part of the village bench project (two in the conked field & two on the playing field).

Following installation plaques will be fitted to certain benches, details of further planned bench sites around the village can be found in the Scene or on previous correspondence on the website.

Further to the Parish Council agreeing the location of the first 4 new benches (2 in the conker field & 2 on the playing field) we can also confirm that at the March PC meeting a further 7 potential locations were discussed as listed below. Some of these have been suggested by members of the community and we thank them for their input.

2 further benches on the Conker field

1 each:

On Melton road opposite the allotments

Next to the Preaching stone

On Station Road next to the post box

On Bleakmore Close on the Green

On the corner of Grange Ave & Melton road.

Due to annual budgets the PC would expect to schedule the installation of any agreed benches over a possible two year Period.

The locations listed on county council land (not PC land) will require a licence which is being investigated by the Clerk.

If you have any other suggestions for locations or comments on the details above please contact the Clerk by the 6th May 2021.

Should any members of the community be interested in sponsoring a bench, please contact the Clerk suenorledge@hotmail.com

Thank you Martin Cooke (Chair)
