Chairman’s plea for car park upgrade support in Denver




Calls to help improve a car park used by a West Norfolk primary school have increased this week.

The management committee at Denver Playing Field Association is appealing for help in upgrading the Denver Playing Fields car park.

Chairman of the Denver Playing Field Association, Alan Thulbourne said: “We need to remove the top grass to a suitable level, construct a bank at the edge of the car park near the pond area leaving a 1m grass service area around the outside of the car park, supply and lay a membrane and supply and lay crushed Tarmac to form a finished surface. This will create 75 spaces.”

The scheme will include new lighting and fencing, and is estimated to cost £27,000, with £10,000 already raised through grants and fundraising.

The car park will also be used by Denver Primary School for pupil drop-off and pick-ups.

The school posted on social media to say: “Denver Playing Field Association have always been fantastic allowing our parents to use the car park to safely drop their children at school - even more important during these difficult times as everyone is able to socially distance on the playing field.

“Unfortunately the combination of bad weather, regular use and a grassy surface means that the car park is sometimes quite tricky to use.”
