Four machines are used in maintaining the playing field and they cover the machine servicing, fuel, Insurance and machine depreciation which all cost £1,800 per year.
The Parish Council (Cllr Kay) will obtain a comparison price/rate from Bedford Mowing of how much it will cost weekly or fortnightly to do 9000 sq. metres but not to include the cricket square. The PC cannot sign up or agree to the cricket club having sole use of the playing field with it being a public open space for all to enjoy. If it is vacant then the cricket club can use. The junior games can occupy a restricted boundary and able to share the field but other games
will need sole use of the field. The Cricket club will need to negotiate with the PC. The fixtures will be available in March therefore these times will need to be booked rather than booking out the field for the whole day and not letting public to use outside the times.
