Green Space Ideas

Two new groups are being set up in Hethersett following the inaugural Green Spaces public meeting in November. 

“We 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 public meeting. 

A 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. 

“The Trust is ready to hear and offer support to ideas that the community has for events on the playing field,” Mr Floyd said. 

The 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 Dates for the first meeting of the groups will be set after Christmas.

A special letter has been sent to all supporters of the Green Spaces Group and a copy of this can be read by clicking here.
