Report of Councillor Alison Hoare Annual Report: It has been a very busy year for Marchwood Parish Council. Together with our Officers we have been working towards achieving a cycle path along Jacobs Gutter Lane/Bury Road and hope to soon be in a position to really progress the project. Before any cycle path design is agreed we hope to consult with residents, especially the cyclists who already brave the road. We have also been deciding on projects to enhance our village using some of our 106 monies which need to be spent within the next 3 years. I am pleased to announce that once again the Parish Council will be nd holding Picnic in the Park, on the 2 August 2014 to celebrate 120 years of the Parish Council, any monies raised during this event will be divided between local Marchwood community groups, the working group are Cllr Rowlands who we couldn’t hold this event without, Cllr Judy Saxby, Cllr Hindle and myself plus a lot of technical advice from our Officers. On behalf of the Parish Council I would very much like to thank all the Officers and Grounds men (for whom it has been a very long winter) for their hard work and support. Army Covenant In May the Chairman, Clerk and Deputy Clerk were invited to Byams House for the signing of the Army Covenant. This covenant forges closer links with the Army and the integration of the service and civilian communities. The covenant can also provide other gains such as grants. The council were successful in receiving funding from the SMC for the installation of new flood lights at the Lloyds Recreation Ground. A very big thank you to the SMC for supporting this project. Admiralty Quay Play Area The play area at Admiralty Quay had become very dated. With this in mind the Parish Council managed to secure funding from NFDC to install a new play area. A consultation was undertaken with residents of the area and the Youth Club to find a preferred scheme. The new play area was installed in early summer and has been heavily used since. 4
