Play Area improvements – Croft Way and Dalelands

Croft Way is the turning off Prospect Road opposite the Beacon Centre in Market Drayton – the Play Area is at the bottom. It sits on the border between the Croft Way estate and the new housing development at Blandford Way, so it now serves a much bigger community. Invitations to tender for the upgrade went out in January and work is expected to start in May or June this year. Next on the list for improvement will be the Dalelands Play Area where upgrading is planned to take place later in the year.

Plans are in hand at the Town Council to install additional floral displays and some new benches in Queen Street. Look out for these as we move through spring towards the summer.

Small and Large Grants

Town Council funding is available for projects which benefit the community. Grants of up to £300 can be requested under the Council’s Small Grants scheme. Twelve such grants of £300 each were awarded in 2021 to groups that were able to show they had ‘community aims whilst benefiting the residents of Market Drayton’. Larger grants of up to £5000 may be applied for too. The rules for both types of grant are available to see on the Town Council website.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration is set to take place in June. The early May-Day bank holiday had been moved to Thursday 2nd June and an extra bank holiday on Friday 3rd June has been created for the Jubilee – So it will be a 4 day weekend (2nd – 5th June)! The Town Council have plans on the drawing board for a jubilee celebration on Thursday 2nd June, so save the date and keep an eye on the Town Council Website:
