NEW COMMUNITY BUILDING AND RECREATION HUB - WE NEED YOUR VIEWS!

 Following a 2018 survey, where a financially viable option was unavailable, a concept which is believed to be both workable and achievable has been identified for a new community building and recreational hub to enhance the facilities that are currently available in Four Marks.  It is essential that residents, organisations and current facility users have input into this project.  Please complete a short questionnaire via Survey Monkey or download the survey, and email to clerk@fourmarks-pc.org.uk or post to the Parish office by the 30th April 2021.
