Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Jack Abell jack.abell@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

WORK has taken place around a vil­lage to im­prove peo­ple’s ac­cess to its com­mons and other public ar­eas.

The im­prove­ments have been tak­ing place in Ger­rards Cross since the end of last year and are de­signed to help make it eas­ier for peo­ple of all ages to en­joy ar­eas such as East and West Com­mon as well as the Camp.

Among the work which has been car­ried out by the parish coun­cil is an ex­ten­sion of West Com­mon path over the nearby bus turn­ing cir­cle grassed area, which has made a safe cross­ing peo­ple to get to East Com­mon on the other side of Pack­horse Road.

The path it­self has also been resur­faced to make it eas­ier to tra­verse fol­low­ing re­quests from fre­quent users of the ar­eas. Also, the en­trance to the Camp, an area of public land near Val­ley Way, has been up­graded, with steps be­ing resur­faced in or­der to en­cour­age more peo­ple to use the area by mak­ing ac­cess to it eas­ier for the.

Parish coun­cil­lor Jen­nifer Woolveridge, said: “The paths are now in a much bet­ter con­di­tion than they were, which very good news.

“The work has been car­ried out and it’s a big im­prove­ment. We want as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to use the com­mons so the fact that the paths are now in bet­ter con­di­tion will hope­fully mean that will hap­pen.”

A new bench has also been in­stalled on the cor­ner of Oak End Way and Mar­sham Lane.

The parish coun­cil is hop­ing to carry out fur­ther im­prove­ments in the com­ing months in prepa­ra­tion for its bid to be named as one of the best kept vil­lages in Bucks.
