Working party information

Thompson Millennium Green use questionnaire

So that the management committee may better understand resident view of the green a questionnaire has been produced and will distributed with the August edition of the Waylander. in explanation of the this the Chair of the management committee wrote; "

Hi, neighbour

15 minutes of your time.....please!

I wrote back in January giving notice that we would be contacting all of the Thompson community to seek ideas for the effective use and management of Thompson Millennium Green (TMG).

Just as a reminder....the Green was established as a charity, now with the Parish Council as the sole trustee. The Council then delegated responsibility for management of the Green (and the Thompson 10k run) to the TMG management committee.

...the Community Hall is a separate charity though we do try to work together and help each other when we can.

...Thompson Primary School is a separate academy trust sponsored by the Co-operative Education East Academy Trust.

The community was keen to set up the Green so we would welcome your input in looking at how the Green works for you and what you would like to achieve going forward.

We will endeavour to collect the questionnaires in the second week of August and alternatively the completed questionnaires may be posted in the letterbox at the entrance of thompson Community Hall.  Should you so wish additional copies may be downloaded from the following link:

Thanks to Lottery funding from the Millennium Commission and other local funders, we have a wonderful Green in the centre of our village.  Here you can walk through the wildlife path, sit and watch the wild life in and around the pond or chase your children through the orchard.  There are various items of play equipment for the children and recent adult play equipment has been installed.  In 2020 an avenue of lime trees was planted.  This is
Celebration Avenue. The link takes you back to 2020.

They organise a number of regular fundraising activities throughout the year, the best known of which is the Annual Thompson 5km and 10km runs which have now become regular events on the village's social calendar.
