Earlier this year Ron and Chris voted against having an all-weather sports pitch at Sweyne Park School . In fact most councillors thought it was too close to residents in Cheapside East and so the District Council refused permission.
However we do feel that a pitch like this is needed in West Rayleigh and have been working to get one at the site of the old Park School in Rawreth Lane, next to the Leisure Centre now being built.
We have got the District Council to support the idea – now we are waiting to see if the County Council will pay for it (after all, they were willing to pay for one in an unsuitable location at Sweyne Park School)
Our Conservative County Councillor is also the one who is in charge of leisure and recreation – so it shoule be fairly easy to arrange. Shouldn’t it?
