Gt. Holland Resident’s Associaion saw a need to provide a surfaced footway to the children’s play area on the village green. The proposal was welcomed and endorsed by the Town Council, Tendring District Council and Essex County Council. The Residents’ Association obtained an “Awards for All” grant and the Town Council and the District Council made substantial financial contributions. The County Council provided the materials. Work is now complete and it is hoped that parents with children in pushchairs will notice an improvement next time they take their children to the play area.
