Harston Playground Progress

As you are aware we were successful in getting a grant from WREN for the renovation of the Harston Playground. The process now is that the awarding body will draft a contract for the provision of the playground with out preferred supplier. This is in process and should be complete within the next few days.

Once done, we should be able to confirm a start date for the work which I will publish here.

Harston Playground Designs

We have had some layouts from a couple of playground equipment vendors, and we’d like to get feedback on them – Apologies that some are PDF files, and others are images. Please do check the designs from each vendor, and leave comments at the reply section at the bottom of the page. If you have a preference for a particular vendor, could you also state which one?

Thank you

Further Development at Trumpington Meadows

As you may have been hearing in the Local Media, Grosvenor are considering submitting a revised proposal for additional housing and sports facilities between the currently planned development to the motorway. This is within the designated green belt and will obviously have a knock on impact to Harston.

Before forming any response, we’d like to know what Harston Villagers thoughts are.
