A swimming pool and village hall were the biggest items on the wish-list when Crowland residents were asked to help shape their town’s future for the parish and community plan.

Parish plan steering group secretary Linda Barton said young people wanted the pool, but it’s unlikely to be delivered because of the cost.

“The village hall is the biggest thing that’s possibly achievable,” she said.

Ms Barton said once a parish plan is in place, the parish council can start applying for grants – but it will have to be a whole community effort to get the hall rather than expecting the parish council to do all of the work by itself.

Plan steering group chairman Bridgett Drummond presented the group’s surplus funds of £1,150 to parish council chairman Mike Jackson and the money will be used to help pay for a double-sided town noticeboard outside The George and Angel pub, in North Street.

The noticeboard was another item on the parish plan wish-list and it will be installed within weeks.
