|Venue||Lutton Playing Field|
Group Leader Ted Atkinson
Do you remember Robin Hood with Richard Green on TV back in the 50s? You do? Then now is the time to re-live your childhood fantasies by joining Ted Atkinson and his Merry Men (and Women) in the Archery Group.
Members of the archery group are aware of problems based around Lutton Park. The Group were, two years ago, given the OK to use the park for their bit of fun (and it is for fun) and some effort has gone into making it so. The recent activity by the Parish Council means that the group are not able to use the Park.
The group repeated their application after the gate leading to the park was locked against them and the Council, at a recent meeting, asked for a risk assessment and a certificate of insurance (quite right). Both of these were provided within three days of the meeting. We were, however, told that we will have to wait until the next meeting for a decision (about six weeks). Group members who attended this meeting were not impressed by the council’s attitude.
To be fair, the Councillors themselves did not comment. The only voice that was heard was that of the Chairman. The group is looking for other venues and any help with this would be much appreciated. We have had an offer of one which we may well take up, and an approach made regarding another local venue has been favourably received. We should hear more at the end of the month.
But when a site is found come and have a go! You may have talents you never knew you had. Contact Ted Atkinson for further information.
