The Village has received a massive overhaul with the installation of paving stones from one end to the other - which will decrease the amount of watering needed in the summertime by approximately 300,000 litres per year. These paving stones will also offer practical benefits such as enhanced walkability and durability. They will also provide a smooth and stable surface for pedestrians, making it easier for guests to move around the village comfortably.
New shade sails for The Woods patio and furniture have been purchased to enhance guest comfort and experience while enjoying the Village. The shade sails offer protection from the sun's rays, creating a more pleasant and relaxing environment for patrons, while the new patio furniture adds a touch of elegance and comfort, making the outdoor space more inviting and enjoyable for guests to unwind and socialize.
