Sparrow Lane Pocket Park
Royal Wootton Bassett receives funding for temporary outdoor seating area
5th August 2022
Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council has been awarded a government’s ‘Welcome Back Fund’; administered by Wiltshire Council.
The Welcome Back Fund was set up to support the welcoming back of residents and visitors to the High Streets after the pandemic by installing temporary dressing projects. City Dressing, who were awarded the contract by Wiltshire Council, prepared a proposal for Sparrow Lane which the Council approved at their Full Council meeting on Thursday 14th July 2022.
Planters and picnic benches have been installed at Sparrow Lane, this the walkway between, The Cloth of Gold, Bassett Bakery and The Little Gem, for all residents and visitors to enjoy. This peaceful area will allow people to enjoy a picnic or catch up with friends and family away from the busy main road.
The items will be in situ until the end of the year, but we hope this will give people the opportunity to consider the possibilities available for a Sparrow Lane Pocket Park project which is currently being considered by the Council.
