WORK on a major project in Felsted began this morning (Monday August 10).
The Felsted Playing Field Project took a giant leap forward when contractors Doe Sports moved onto the field to start the construction of a multi use play area (MUGA). It is anticipated that the MUGA will be ready for use by the end of October.
This new play facility for Felsted will provide a hard standing, fenced area suitable for football, netball and basketball. It is being funded by a National Lottery Grant found by Uttlesford District Council and by a grant provided via Essex County Council.
Project committee member David Gregory said: "It has been a long and sometimes barren haul from when Felsted Parish Council first started to look at new facilities for the children of Felsted. Whilst I am sorry that we have missed the summer holiday period at last we can see something is being done."
