New Police Station 

News Snippets

Playground to be given

The old  Police Station was sold last year and is now a shop.  The police base was transferred to Lechlade. After years of deliberation, the new Police Station has been built on London Road by the developers of the Orchard Retirement complex.

That's the good news. The bad news is that the station is not yet in use due to a delay in installing some computer equipment.  Even when this is in place, the station will not be manned all the time as the Beat Officer's area covers from Birdlip to South Cerney, Lechlade to Didmarton.

Youth and Community Centre Purchase
There will be a public meeting to discuss this on Wednesday 6th March at 7.30 in the Community Centre.

No road improvements planned
Fairford Town Council were dismayed to hear that Fairford does not feature in the 2002/3 Gloucestershire Highways Maintenance budget plans. Residents are urged to write to the Divisional Surveyor at 2 Love Lane, Cirencester, GL7 1YG if they have specific complaints about sections of road or pavement. Please send a copy of the letter to the Town Clerk, Jenny Collyer.


The Walnut Tree Field Playground Committee which formed at the beginning of February has started a campaign for the playground to be revitalised.

On Sunday 24th February repainting, re-turfing and general cleaning up will begin with the help of Fairford Rugby Club muscle and a grant of 100 from Fairford Town Council. The work will be continued in April.

During the summer Fairford residents will be consulted as to their ideas for the playground which will be used for a fund-raising campaign for new equipment.
