Our village Recreation Ground is being currently transformed into a community space, complete with a wild flower meadow, play equipment, pathways and new signage. This second phase of work started in April and villagers are now being encouraged to have their say and shape the detail. What kind of play equipment do you want? Where do you want the signage and seating? What else would you like on the Rec? Find out more see our latest edition of Hardingstone Voice and follow our updates here
The Parish Council are holding a number of consultation events over the next few weeks so that residents can view and comment on the plans submitted by the four play providers - details of the "Have Your Say" events being held in Hardingstone can be found here. Please find a copy of the feedback form here - you can print off, complete and return to the Parish Council before 5 June 2012.

Village Sign .... We have successfully won a grant of £4,500 from ‘Awards for All’ to fund a village sign. We sought your views at the Hardingstone Fete and most people said they wanted to see pictures of the church, war memorial, cottages, village hall and Queen Eleanor Cross. The most popular locations were at both entrances to the village, the Green and the Warren. Our next steps are to assess the suitability of these locations and consult with any residents, land owners and agencies affected. Contact details of the Clerk and all Parish Councillors can be found on the Contact Page and on all notice boards.
