Council Reviews Moormead Charges to Reach Agreement With School

“After having read about St Stephen’s School’s concerns about their bill for use of Moormead in the press, the Council started a review, in order to find an amicable agreement.

To date we have met with the contractors who manage sports bookings – Veolia and reviewed the current prices and use of Moormead by St Stephens and all other schools who use pitches in other parks in a similar way.

We have checked and the rates being applied for the use booked by the school are correct, using the rates set annually by the Council, since St Stephen’s do make a lot of use of the site. The rates have not increased (except by 2.5% in line with inflation) but the school is now booking and being charged for all formal use of the park.

Have a look at this Council webpage and email or call them to let them know that the noise of aeroplanes landing at 4 am wakes you up. If nobody lets them know then they won’t write it in their reports and they will assume everything is OK.”

Reader Appeal: The Barons Road

“The road surface in The Barons is in very bad condition and is once again pock marked where the surface has been peeled off. It dangerous for cylcists like myself.

The road has never been re-surfaced in over 15 years. They patch it and the patches come off. It looks horrible.

I’ve asked Richmond Council a number of times to schedure a re-surface but they say “… no money”.

I have once again asked for their help.

Can I ask through your Newsletter that other Barons residents, who feel the same, please report the problem to Richmond Council?”
