TUPTON: Parish council funds laser tag event in summer holidays

Tupton Parish Council has agreed to provide further activites during the summer holidays. In addition, to providing sponsorship for the Cool Stuff for Kids activities at Tupton Hall School and the Children Centre Holiday Activities Group, the council has also arranged for the Extreme Wheels Master Blaster Laser Tag event to come to Tupton’s Ford Street recreation ground on Tuesday, August 27 between 1pm and 4pm.

At the council’s monthly meeting, members heard that thank-you letters had been received from 1st Tupton Rainbows and Tupton Rugby Club for grants they had been given by the council.

The council has launched its Participatory Budgeting Scheme where local residents or groups can put forward suggestions or schemes (up to a value of £20,000) on how to improve the Parish. Application forms are available on the council website, www.tuptonpc.org.uk, and those schemes that are selected will be put forward to a local community vote prior to them being taken forward. This is an opportunity for residents to have their say on how and what their money is spent on.

Local groups will soon be able to have links from the council website to their own website following the decision to establish a local community web page on the council website. Anyone with a local group or organisation wishing to include a link to their website are asked to contact the clerk via clerk@tuptonpc.org.uk.

Following complaints received at the last meeting, the council was pleased to report that the hedges on Ankerbold Road had now been cut back.

The next meeting of the council will be held on Thursday, September 19, at 7pm in the Village Hall.
