We are delighted to announce that at the Parish Council Meetings of 16th May it was agreed to proceed and have an additional 20 car parking spaces created close to the barriers on Bicknacre Playing Fields. This will be used by the football club on Sundays to help alleviate parking issues, and by request from Bicknacre Village Hall, The Priory Primary School, Friends of Priory Fields for overflow parking when required.
