NEW PLAY PARK equipment is to be installed in Cherry Burton in an investment worth in excess of £50,000. It will complement existing facilities on the site opposite the village pond and is expected to be in place by April.

Parish councillors Pete Wardale, Tony Baker and John Wilson (Chair) at the site where the playground equipment will be built at Cherry Burton.

The news was announced by Cherry Burton Parish Council after £34,000 in funding was secured from the FCC Communities Foundation, which awards grants for community, conservation and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment, a leading UK waste and resource management company. The parish council added to the grant with a contribution of £16,600. 

The money will be used to buy additional new equipment which includes a Multiplay Unit, Wheelchair Accessible Roundabout, Double Perch and a Metal Nest Swing. And there will be a soft rubber floor surface under and around the equipment. Parish council chairman John Wilson told Beverley FM: “This project will provide a huge boost to the children of Cherry Burton and we are really looking forward to our new Play Park taking shape over the next four months.” 

BUS FARES charged by East Yorkshire Buses, as well as those charged by most other companies, have been capped at a maximum of £2 until March 31 as part of the Government’s “Help for Households” program. There is no maximum distance for journeys but the cap only covers local buses  – it doesn’t cover inter-city coach journeys. Fares below £2 will remain unchanged.
