Vil­lagers are sit­ting pretty

THURLBY

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

Hun­dreds of res­i­dents i n Thurlby are now ben­e­fit­ing from a new out­door seat­ing area.

The com­mu­nity, in the vil­lage near Bourne, have re­ceived the new com­mu­nity area cour­tesy of South Kesteven’s Com­mu­nity Fund.

The new fa­cil­ity is lo­cated ad­ja­cent to the vil­lage’s play­ing fields. It will give lo- cal res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to watch games played by the dozens of lo­cal sports club mem­bers dur­ing poor weather. It will also be used as a meet­ing point for events and ac­tiv­i­ties, by pet own­ers and their dogs, and those tak­ing a stroll around the play­ing fields or en­joy­ing it as shade from the sun in the sum­mer.

Leader of South Kesteven District Coun­cil and Ex­ec­u­tive Mem­ber for Growth, Coun­cil­lor Bob Adams said: “It’s great to see that the fa­cil­ity hasal­ready­beenused­byso many peo­ple in Thurlby and the sur­round­ing area. When the fund was set up, suc­cess­ful grants have had to demon­strate how they would have a wider­com­mu­ni­ty­ben­e­fi­tand this is anex­cel­lent ex­am­ple of apro­ject that has­done­ex­actly that. I com­mend the group’s fore­sight to recog­nise, ap­ply for andin­stall a fa­cil­ity that so manypeo­ple­ca­nen­joy­ben­e­fit from.”
