Saffron Walden Town Council, under R4U stewardship, has won a top gold award and two merits for the maintenance and upkeep of its play areas from the Essex Playing Fields Association. These are in addition to another recent award for second best council in Essex, and the council’s Tourist Information Centre winning its category top spot at the Essex Business Awards.
Cllr Gadd added “This recognition is in addition to the awards we recently won for second best council in Essex, and the our Tourist Information Centre winning its category top spot at the Essex Business Awards. Winning a string of independent awards shows that our town is in great hands under R4U stewardship. And we have more exciting news. We expect to soon be breaking ground on a new multi-function path along the bottom of The Common. It will connect Chaters Hill, the play area, and Common Hill, allowing pedestrians, pushchairs, bikes and mobility scooters to access the town without having to wade through the mud that is there now or jostle with traffic on East Street. We can’t wait to get started.”
