New Notice Board
In case you've not already spotted it, there is a new notice board by Stafford Orchard entrance, just beyond the car park. This will be almost exclusively for park related events or announcements.
Santa Maria Bridge
The work on the bridge has been completed. We are awaiting a road closure order so that the concrete can be delivered for the building of the supports. Once this work has been done, a definite date for the bridge to be put back in place will be announced.
Quorn Open Gardens
A total of just over £2,700 was raised for LOROS at the recent Open Gardens event in Quorn. Well done to everyone involved.
As well as putting bags of dog poo in the specially provided bins, they can also be deposited in the ordinary litter bins.

Stafford Orchard Green Flag
Posted to website July 26th 2015
Stafford Orchard has received its third Green Flag Award from Keep Britain Tidy
The award recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country. A Green Flag flying overhead is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities. Stafford Orchard remains one of only a very few Green Flag parks in the UK owned and maintained by a Parish Council.
The park is managed by a Park Management Committee - a mixture of Parish Councillors and local volunteers. Their aim is to maintain standards and develop the park in line with the needs of the community.
Councillor Elizabeth Harrison, Chair of the Park Management Committee said:
We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award for the third time. The Award acknowledges the professionalism of the staff and the commitment of the volunteers. It also recognises that the people of Quorn and surrounding communities have access to a local green space of the very highest quality.
The Committee is always looking for new volunteers to help out in the Stafford with gardening, odd jobs and as Park Wardens, so if you can spare an hour or two to help keep your local park in great shape, please contact Christina Gibbs, our Parish Clerk.
