Redlingfield Parish Council is hoping to make £80,000 worth of improvements to Doorstep Green.

Opened in July 2006 after 96 per cent of respondents in a village survey said they wanted recreational area built, the three-quarter acre site sits close to the centre of the village.

Parish clerk Janet Norman-Philips said: “We worry that we don’t have enough for our young people and that access to the Doorstep Green needs to be far better for our older and less able citizens – who like to exercise there and sit at the many tables and benches in the flower gardens.

“There are lots of improvements people want. We have only a couple of items of play equipment and nothing for teenagers or toddlers.

“Our wildflower meadow and wildlife area is too small and we need more space and facilities for sport, ball games and sport and fitness equipment.

“When creating it we didn’t think deeply enough about future growth – we didn’t realise how popular it was going to be and we made it far, far too small.”

She added she hoped the project could run along with plans for St Andrew’s Church.

Last week the Diss Express reported that residents were beginning to rally to raise funds to help save the church .

Repairs and improvements could cost as much as £150,000.
