Councillors are planning a Welcome Evening on 6th December in The Pavilion.

The Parish Council would like to welcome all new Hanborough residents and all existing residents to a social evening. There will be refreshments and the Social Club bar will be open.

Use of Section 106 Recreation Funding

As explained in last August’s Hanborough Herald, about £550,000 of Section 106 funding for recreation will become available to the parish over the next few years. Hanborough Parish Council (HPC) proposes to split this money between one large infrastructure project, in the shape of a new community building, and a number of relatively minor projects, which will be taken forward by community groups (we expect bids from Hanborough Playing Fields Association, the Community Association, the Bowls Club and perhaps one or two others – there is an application form on HPC’s website, with criteria for how these bids will be assessed).

HPC’s reasons for putting a large proportion of the Section 106 money, £450,000, towards a new building will be obvious to many residents: first, depending on the fabric of existing buildings, refurbishment alone cannot take us far enough towards being able to meet future demands; and secondly, a new building has the advantage that it can be designed from scratch, without having to compromise because of what is already in place. Current provision in the parish works brilliantly to serve our existing community, but we shall need to provide more (and different) space for our future community.   

Hanborough’s rapid growth in population will not just bring a 33% increase in the volume of residents wanting to use recreational facilities: an influx of so many people in the space of a few years will present new challenges to our community’s cohesion, requiring more diverse provision to address residents’ needs and priorities. Many more children than is currently the case will have to go to schools elsewhere and many incoming adults will have no social connections. 

What can we do to foster a sense of belonging? HPC believes that a new community building could be part of the answer. Perhaps it could have drop-in times for various age or interest groups, as well as designated activity times? Which functions would you like it to perform: social, educational, exercise, sports (other than those already provided for), arts, entertainment? Do you have an opinion on what its main emphasis should be? Let us know in writing, then HPC will convene a public meeting to discuss ideas and identify priorities.
