Acre Close Improvements

Whitnash Town Council has commenced what will be a series of improvements to the bund at the far end of Acre Close Field, behind Palmer Road and the Whitnash Sports & Social Club. The bund has had weed killer put on it in preparation of the work that is to follow.

The bund will then be raked and rotavated before having a selection of new trees and wild flowers planted on it. The Town Council would like to thank Mr David Clough for sourcing the trees, and the Friends of Acre Close for sourcing the wild flowers. The Town Council itself is providing the bushes.

This work is expected to improve this area of the field, and provide a pleasant environment for park users.

Whitnash Community Hub update

Over the last few months, a working group has been looking at ways in which to replace the current community centre at Acre Close, which was one of the things highlighted in the Whitnash Neighbourhood Plan.

The working group is made up of Whitnash Town councillors, representatives of the Whitnash Sports & Social Club, Whitnash Primary School, and Warwick District Council, with the aim of working together to try to ensure that the solution is the best possible for the good of the local community for years to come.

Recently, the group considered 3 different proposals –

Option 1 - a direct replacement of the current community hall as a new community hub,

Option 2 - a new community hub and additional sports hall

Option 3 - a new community hub, additional sports hall, and some new/refurbished facilities for the Sports & Social Club

Whilst the third of these is the most expensive option, it was felt this offered the best solution for all, and certainly for the town and its residents over the coming years.

At separate extraordinary meetings recently, both the full Town Council, and the members of the Whitnash Sports & Social Club voted overwhelmingly to pursue Option 3, so the finer details of what this might entail can now be investigated further, and the business case put together.

Charity, P3, launches new countywide support service for adults over 25.

Please find below information about a new charity called P3, that aims to help people live in their own homes. It is a service for those aged 25 and above, so very wide ranging. The following text is from an email that was distributed to Town and Parish Councils in Warwickshire.

From August the 1st, Warwickshire charity P3  launched a new countywide floating support service for adults over 25.

This will be a new approach, ensuring that people in Warwickshire who need help to manage and maintain their accommodation receive the right support, at the right time, and in the right place.

This flexible service will provide a bespoke package of support centred around the individual, addressing the very reasons they are struggling to maintain their property, with the purpose of helping them to move forward and continue living in their own home.

We will provide support:

Directly in people’s homes

  • Via our Mobile advice vehicle
  • At our new “Navigator” drop-in centres (located in Nuneaton and Rugby)
  • In community venues across the county

We’ll also be operating a 24hr helpline for people using our services to ensure there’s always someone trained, friendly, and ready to help at the end of the phone.

Making a referral is easy and quick through our online referral form, or by

downloading a referral form, which you can email or post to our Nuneaton office (address below).

Our mobile drop-in centre will be hitting the roads too, taking our services wherever they’re needed with a particular focus on older people.  If you’d like us to visit your area, please give us a call to let us know.

Follow the link below for leaflets to provide you with an overview of what our service can offer - If you feel this service may benefit your clients, please let us know and we’ll deliver some promotional literature to your organisation.
