During the NDP consultation in November 2017 a young mother asked why there is no play area in Norton. It was something that had been on my mind for a few years and that comment brought the idea to the fore. A working party was formed, under the auspices of the parish council, to plan, raise funds and manage the construction of the play area. They have worked diligently and now they are in the process of raising the funds to build facility. A plan of the area can be seen below. It will be against the hedge on the right hand side of the playing field and I am sure it will be a valued community asset to the village for years to come.
