A COMMUNITY group which is looking to improve amenities for the public in Sutton Bridge is celebrating its latest success.

Travellers who find themselves stopping for a rest can now make use of two new picnic benches on the green at the end of Bridge Road.

The benches have been provided thanks to fundraising efforts of The Friends of Sutton Bridge Playing Fields and Open Spaces.

Group members John and Doreen Grimwood, Dave Hallam and Chris Brandon-King had only just finished putting the new benches in place when they were immediately put to use.

A couple travelling from east Yorkshire to Norwich stopped and asked if they could use them.

The group say they were only too happy to invite them to be the first visitors to make use of them.

Chairman Shirley Giles said: “This is only our second success, and we hope for many more in the future.”
