Summer on the Common

IMG_0538New football nets and a basketball post and net have just been installed on the Common for the start of the school summer holiday by the parish council. We hope young people and perhaps those not so young will enjoy them.

Dog walkers and others are enjoying this lovely piece of land we call the common, which is the gateway to other lovely walks along the river towards Steart and a 3 mile circular walk along the new footpath through Steart Marshes. This is an easy walk and has the advantage of public toilets (on Stert Drove) halfway round. New footpaths will be opening soon with bird hides to help you enjoy the wildlife. For those with restricted mobility why not drive to the official car park on Stert Drove and take advantage of wheelchair friendly access to the marshes.
