During 2014 we successfully constructed Sevor Farm Solar, and we would like to thank you for your patience while this work was carried out. We are delighted to tell you that the solar farm is fully operational, and the energy being produced is feeding directly into Honda of the UK Manufactoring Ltd.
We would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. We look forward to working with you in 2015!
Following their surprise receipt of BBC West Sports Unsung Hero Award 2014 (see here for BBC footage of them at work), Bev and Chris Maull, leaders of Swindon Spitfires ladies football club, went to Glasgow at the weekend to attend the BBC Sport Personality of the Year Award 2014 ceremony.
They eventually came 3rd out of the 15 National Unsung Hero finalists, losing out to Jill Stedever, who has spent over 60 years teaching swimming to children with special needs.
August and September of this year saw a complete refurbishment of the children’s play area on the recreation field. Repairs have been carried out and repainting done, and we have been very pleased by the number of villagers who have commented on how good it is now looking.
South Marston Recreation Association (SMRA) is enormously grateful to the Trustees of the F and E Harris Trust for their very generous donation, without which this amount of work would not have been possible.
Virtually everything that happens on the field is as a result of volunteers, but a proper overhaul of play equipment required more expertise than we can command.
SMRA’s general running expenses, which cover hedge-cutting, field maintenance, upkeep of the changing rooms and kitchen etc. are covered not only by fund-raising via Summer Fete and Christmas Bazaar, but also by generous support from the Parish Council.
The F and E Harris Trust has assisted SMRA on previous occasions, in the purchase of a set of swings and also replacement of wooden marquee poles to aluminium. We thank them again for their continuing and generous support.
