Eggcellent celebration at Long Compton
Families at Warwickshire Rural Housing Association’s new development in Long Compton enjoyed an eggcellent celebration to mark the completion of a brand new play area in the village.
Youngsters joined representatives from WRHA, developer Heyford Homes and members of Long Compton Parish Council in a fun Easter egg hunt at the new play area on the development, followed by home-baked cakes and hot cross buns.
Following a welcome by Richard Mugglestone, Company Secretary of WRHA, speeches were made by Derrick Dyas, Chairman of WRHA and Bill Cook, Chair of Long Compton Parish Council.
WRHA completed Weston Court, a scheme of five much-needed affordable homes specifically for local people, and four for Local Market sale, in the village last Summer. As part of the development, it provided funding to the Parish Council to create a wooden play area on the site so that youngsters no longer have to travel across Long Compton to reach the village’s only play area.
Now families are enjoying meeting and socialising at the play area, helping to bring the community together.
Derrick Dyas, WRHA Chairman said: “Our aim is to help local rural communities, such as Long Compton, to thrive. This year we’re celebrating 30 years of providing local homes for local people where they are most needed in Warwickshire’s villages.
“We’re pleased we’ve enabled this new play area to be completed in the village as part of our new development and we hope it will be enjoyed by families for many years to come.”
