Lace Hill Easter Event 7th April

 
Easter Bunnies to feature at an Eggstaordinary Easter Event at Lace Hill Centre!
Buckingham Town Council is hosting an Eggstraordinary Easter event this Sunday, 7th April 2019 from 2pm to 4.30pm at the Lace Hill Community Centre.
This community event is aimed at families with young children and is open to all Buckingham residents. Children will be able to enjoy Easter themed crafts – supported by Crafty Little Monsters, and an Easter themed hunt. Adults will be able to browse an array of craft, business and local information stalls. Refreshments will be served and available to purchase from Project Street Life.
Both adults and children will be entertained and will love getting up close to cute little animals on their visit to the pop up farm. There will be a pony, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks and of course Easter bunnies to stroke and admire.

A small £1 entrance fee per person will help pay for the event and used towards future events.
Councillor Terry Bloomfield, Chair of the Town Council’s Town Centre and Events Committee, said: “We love organising events and bringing the community together. It’s wonderful to see the same families coming back and enjoying the events and always great to welcome new faces at the Lace Hill Sports and Community Centre”.

Community Tree Planting at Lace Hill

 
An impressive 20 volunteers from the local community came along to the Town Council’s Tree Planting Day on Sunday February 2019 at Lace Hill Football Pitches. Volunteers included Buckingham Rotary Club, Buckingham’s Tree Wardens and Town Council staff and Councillors. With plenty of people turning up to lend a hand and lighten the workload, it was a successful and cheerful day of planting.
Volunteers helped to plant 280 saplings to improve the appearance of this green space Volunteers gathered together after planting trees at Lace Hill on a sunny dayand slow the wind down through a mosaic of predominantly broadleaved trees. The saplings were secured from Cole’s Nurseries through generous donation from Buckingham’s Rotary Club to create a native shelterbelt around the pitch and will help to improve biodiversity in the area.
Councillor Margaret Gateley, who also joined in the event, said “It was great to work alongside various community groups on a glorious sunny morning. I look forward to going back in a few months to see how the trees are coming along. Our Estates Team will be keeping an expert eye on them in the meantime.”
