On Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd December contractors working alongside Swindon Borough Council will be digging a trench on the edge of the recreation ground near the car park in the village.
This is an essential investigation related to the school expansion planning and the Parish Council has little option other than to allow the work.
The Parish Council has stressed that the site should be safe and secured while being worked on and that all measures will be taken to ensure the area is reinstated adequately. This includes ensuring the ground is level, turf condition is satisfactory and that disruption to football users and the public is minimised.
Councillors will check the work following reinstatement and it has been agreed that additional remedial works will be carried out in the new year if required.
