Entrance Arch

The New Entrance Arch is now completed, photos can be viewed in the ‘Gallery’. We would like to thank Councillor Worthington, Councillor Lucas and Councillor Elsie Fallows for their donations towards the cost of the ‘Arch’ and also contributions from the parishioners.

Disabled Access

After months of discussion and plans being passed, the Disabled Access entrance is now completed. It has been a long daunting task but well worth the wait. Cotton Parish Council received a donation of £10,000 towards the cost of the disabled access which was granted by ‘Awards for All’ National Lottery who we owe a big thank you as without their help we were unable to meet the costs of the project.

Local Companies have also helped, JCB  who continue to give their support with equipment and  groundwork, Aggregate Industries, Cauldon Low with their donation of aggregate and Tarmac Construction.

All in all, we cannot thank enough, the businesses that are helping in enhancing our beautiful village.

In our ‘Gallery‘ section, you will see pictures of the completed ‘Disabled Access’.
