Old Play Equipment

5 August 2021

After discussion with East Suffolk Norse, Mr David Bracey and, most importantly, users of the old play equipment, a decision has been made NOT to relocate it to next to the new equipment. It was felt the old equipment would probably not withstand being taken apart and that surfacing would need to be renewed. It was also felt that this equipment was more suitable for very young children who may enjoy a less noisy play experience. Instead, we will now look to refurbish the old equipment to ‘spruce’ it up for a few more years.

Hollesley Emergency Committee

31 March 2021

Back in 2015 HPC drafted an Emergency Plan, in line with local guidelines. However, it was never completed because very few volunteers stepped forward to be ‘Wardens’ and so the plan fell apart. In 2018 the subject was re-visited but again, virtually no one stepped forward to be part of the plan.

Quiet Lanes - An Update

18 March 2021

Twelve Peninsula residents joined the Clerks of Hollesley and Bawdsey Parish Councils, along with Andrew Cassy from the Quiet Lane Suffolk team, at a Zoom meeting on 24th February. A presentation was offered and a number of questions were asked and answered. These, along with many comments received beforehand, will now go to Suffolk County Council for them to consider the lanes proposed. In some cases traffic surveys are required and the Covid restrictions may result in these being delayed but they will remain on the list and will be picked up in a later phase of the project.
