Improving a village nature area and community pavilion are two of the items on a new priority list for Tydd St Mary Parish Council.

Clearer guidelines for the use of Rectory Road Playing Field and more seating around Tydd St Mary have also been included in objectives for 2018-19 by parish council chairman Coun John Ley.

Confirmation of Coun Ley serving a fifth year as parish council chairman, with Coun Nicolette Evans elected as vice chairman, was the main decision reached during a meeting in Tydd Gote on Thursday.

In his chairman's report for the year 2017-18, Coun Ley said: "Last year, we identified some challenges and objectives which included the removal of the old changing rooms and outbuildings used by the bowls club.

"Further work on the footpath to the primary school, new terms for use of the playing field, the Common Pit at the entrance to the village and the updating and fencing of the play areas in Tydd St Mary and Tydd Gote, to provide a secure area for young children, were other challenges identified."

Coun Ley went on to confirm that removal work at the bowls club took place at the end of December 2017, allowing for the footpath to be "replaced and made good".

The council had also drawn up a "formal agreement" with Tydd St Mary Football Club about the use of Glebe Playing Field during the 2017-18 season.

Coun Ley said: "This agreement confirmed the dates and times that the football club can access and use the Glebe.

"In doing so, it provides clear, free time where the facility is available to the residents and general public.

"The agreement also prevents overusage and allows for a proper close season."
