Exciting Plans for the Creech Recreation Field 2012-04-24 15:32:40

Article submitted by Eric Chown, Web Publicity

At the annual parish meeting on Friday the 20th of April 2012 the plans for the recreation field were on display.

It seems a very exciting development and while there are a few more hurdles to overcome, if the project does turn into reality the new facilities will be the envy of surrounding parishes.

The field will be transformed by moving the football pitch northwards, still with an East/West orientation.  This will allow the construction of three activity areas in front and to the West of the pavilion.  One for toddlers, an adventure area for juniors and seniors with the final place designated as a Multi User Games Area (MUGA).

The area for toddlers will be fenced in with a variety of things for supervised play.

The next area will be full of frames, swings and other apparatus to engage the junior and senior children.

The MUGA is for all age ranges in the parish. From the drawings it looks like it can be marked out for basketball and five aside football pitches.  It may even be for other sports.

I am not sure of the technicalities but I certainly hope that the PC will pull out all the stops to ensure that our current forlorn looking playing field is turned into a wonderful amenity that every parishioner can be proud of.

All of the above is in addition to the 'teen' shelter which is already in place.

It is hoped that the whole community of Creech St Michael will support the Parish Council in achieving what has been a long time ambition.

Newcomers at The Bell Inn 2012-04-03 08:20:20

Article submitted by Eric Chown, Web Publicity

Stacy Vile and Daniel Clarke have recently taken over as “Mine Hosts” at The Bell Inn in the centre of the village.

They bring some fresh ideas to the pub and plan to make it more family orientated.  With new ales, live music once a monthly and what sounds like a new and exciting menu both for lunch and evening meals.

They plan to arrange a garden area at the rear of premises with lots of things to do for the children while Mum and Dad chill out on a summer evening.

The meat is locally sourced and the fish is so fresh it still thinks it can swim (not true, I have just made that up).

The bar menu is also quite adventurous – well all the gourmet burgers have fancy names, served with chips and home made coleslaw.  The standards like jacket potatoes, scampi, paninis and fish and chips are also on the very extensive menu.

Welcome to Creech, Stacy and Daniel, and we wish you success running The Bell Inn.
