new groups are being set up in Hethersett following the inaugural Green Spaces
public meeting in November.
were so encouraged by the support for the event that we want to take things
forward to ensure that Hethersett becomes a village where the green spaces are
held for the common good, used, cared for and developed for and by the people
of the village with a respect for nature and for the needs of the
community,” said Hethersett parish councillor Simon Floyd who chaired the
Friends of the Field group will be set up early in the New Year to work with
the Hethersett Memorial Playing Field Trust to bring activity, fun and
involvement to the field.
Trust is ready to hear and offer support to ideas that the community has for
events on the playing field,” Mr Floyd said.
second new idea is a Green Spaces Working Group to look into the issue of
green space in the village in its broader context. This group will work
together with the Hethersett Environmental Action Team (HEAT) to consider the
community potential of areas such as the parish pit, land around the village
hall, Beckhithe Meadow and the current grazing land adjacent to Hethersett
High School playing fields. It will also be looking at green spaces in the
context of proposed new housing development.
Anybody interested in joining the new groups can contact Simon Floyd on 01603 814171 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dates for the first meeting of the groups will be set after Christmas.
