Friday 3rd June 2022 - A huge thank you goes out to all those wonderful residents who supported our Vintage Tea Party by loaning crockery and linen to add to our wonderful display.  60 people enjoyed our event with traditional sandwiches, cakes and of course scones, jam and cream and gallons of tea !   A free raffle saw chocolates being enjoyed with a celebratory medal attached.  We raised £80 in free donations which added to our overall total of £408.40 for two days of events which will be donated to Dementia UK.

Saturday 4th June 2022 – A free family fun day with only a hint of rain was enjoyed by hundreds of people.  Children and adults alike enjoyed the free bouncy castles, and I am sure the parents benefitted from the tired children at the end of the day.  All day music provided a welcomed interlude, and the free celebratory cake was handed out to all those who attended.  Check out our Community Engagement Page on our website for pictures.

The Parish Council would like to thank all those who supported with their attendance and a huge thank you to the staff and Councillors who gave their time freely to work these days to ensure the residents had the best possible time.   #purtoncares #communityengagement

The trimming back of growth around stiles etc has continued in the Bentham and Purton Stoke area. This will continue as we work in The Pry to The Fox area next. We have also strimmed overgrown footpaths that have been reported and will continue with those we know need to have attention.

A new bridge was installed over a wide ditch on FP6 off of Stoke Common Lane and the hanging post to a wooden kissing gate was replaced on FP72 off of Hyde Lane. A second kissing gate on this footpath also needs attention which we hope to do in June. These have been in position since 2001 so have lasted just over 20 years.
