Work has finally started to build the new Community Building in Belmont Park. The old swings have been removed – farewell and thanks for all the memories! A section of old fence has also been removed to allow the contractors to set up the site.
The project is scheduled to last until the end of March 2019. The current Hut will continue in use as usual while building works continue. When the new building is complete, the old Hut will be removed and the area returned to grass.
This will inevitably involve some disruption to park access and the children’s’ play area. Go to the Vision page for full details including the site plan which shows the areas that will be affected.
The Friends of Belmont Park group (part of NCA) are looking for ideas and funds to upgrade the play area – please get involved.
This year’s Winter Warmer is on Sunday 16th December, 6pm – 8pm, in The Hut, Belmont Park. CELEBRATE THE SEASON with mulled drinks & nibbles. Joyful foot-tapping music from the Newtown Roots Band. FREE ENTRY! Christmas refreshments with voluntary donation.
