Preparations for the New Entrance Arch are underway and should be completed within the next few weeks. Photos will be posted upon completion. We would like to thank Councillor Worthington and Councillor Lucas for their donations towards the cost of the ‘Arch’ and also contributions from the parishioners.
After months of discussion and plans being passed, work will commence on the new Disabled Access entrance. It has been a long daunting task but well worth the wait. Cotton is also excited to receive 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 the help we were unable to meet the costs of the project. The groundwork is being carried out by JCB who continue to support the community for which we are most grateful. Another local company, Alpha Aggregates have kindly donated 15 tonnes of aggregate. All in all, we cannot thank enough, the businesses that are helping in enhancing our beautiful village.
The Cemetery wall has recently been rebuilt in places as it had fallen down. The work was carried out by a local building mason, who did an excellent job.
