Enjoying a cup of coffee outside Pistachios in the Park, Banstead recently were Aysin (Mr Pistachio) and son Ben – manager of this popular cafe - together with the Leader of Reigate & Banstead Council Cllr Mark Brunt, David Talbot Chair of Banstead Village Residents Association and Marion Hayns and David Martin from Banstead Village in Bloom (BViB)
BViB had successfully applied to the Council for money from the CIL Fund (Community Infrastructure Levy) towards the cost of replacement of the old wooden benches with smart lightweight chrome tables and chairs together with a new rubbish bin for the ubiquitous dog ends, and to this BVRA added some money towards the purchase of the eye catching red umbrellas.
This is just the first of the improvements planned for this much loved park in the centre of our Village. Work to a new sensory bed part financed by Specsavers together with a further grant from the CIL Fund is due to be started in the autumn and it is hoped that further improvements to the Children’s Play area will become possible once planning for fundraising events can be undertaken once more, hopefully early in the New Year.
