Pavilion’s under way
WORK is due to start on a village pavilion after years of planning.
Stoke Poges Parish Council said work would begin on The Pavilion, in Bells Hill Recreation Ground, on September 29.
It is expected work will be completed in April 2015.
The project has been ongoing, with talks starting as long ago as 2010.
When the previous council resigned in 2010, the new council stated its intention in getting the project off the ground.
Chairman Ralph Bagge said it had taken time as there had to be a consultation, architects appointed and planning permission granted.
Now this has all been achieved, work can start.
Mr Bagge said: “It has been a project that has been ongoing for a number of years.
“We had been working to find an architect and get planning permission.” A NURSERY held an afternoon tea for the community.
The Banana Moon Day Nursery, at Chiltern House, Bells Hill, Stoke Poges, opened its doors to villagers on Saturday.
The nursery invited the community to pop in for a tea so neighbours could see the new nursery before its opening.
Charity Acts of Hope, which the nursery supports, also attended to explain what it does.
Director Julie Sharma said: “We’re ready to open but are waiting on Ofsted, so we wanted the neighbours to come and meet us and show them the building as people were interested. It’s a listed building, so we haven’t changed the structure. Families and children came along, as well as Acts of Hope.”
The group is inviting people to pop in again from 10am to 1pm on Saturday. There will be a music class from noon to 1pm and charity Acts of Hope will again be there.
