The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

Res­i­dents have taken the next step to keep their “vil­lage green” in tip top con­di­tion.

The Dean­ery Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion (DRA) took pos­ses­sion of a ride on mower last month. Chair­man Pe­ter Thomp­son ex­plained: “The DRA serves the res­i­dents of the es­tate called The Dean­ery.

“We de­cided to cut the grass our­selves on both greens on the es­tate and raised suf­fi­cient funds to pur­chase a sec­ond hand sit and ride mower.

“The Peter­bor­ough Mower and Ground­care Cen­tre sup­plied the mower at a sub­stan­tial dis­count and are main­tain­ing the ma­chine and Bret­ton Parish Coun­cil pro­vided a grant of £250 to­wards the costs. A re­cent res­i­dents pic­nic and tombola raised £146 to pay for petrol.”

The DRA has planted 20 trees and a WW1 memo­rial hedgerow as well as stag­ing var­i­ous events to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether.
