Grange Field - Consulting on a community asset
Grange Field sits in the centre of Charlton Kings. It is used for dog walking, for games and as an opportunity to visit and attend the Summer Fayre. However, for many residents it is just an area people cross to get from one place to another.
Charlton Kings Parish Council acquired the lease of Grange Field from Cheltenham Borough Council in 2019. We are very keen to encourage greater use of this fantastic community resource by all local residents and are planning some enhancements with a focus on wellbeing, health, fitness and nature.
The Parish Council would now like your views on the ideas that have been put forward, and on how the Field could be used to the best effect.
By early November 2020 residents who live within half a mile of Grange Field will receive a leaflet through the door providing more detail and asking them to complete a survey and return it to the Charlton Kings Parish Council Office in Church Piece by 20th November 2020.
For those who prefer to respond online, and residents living further away, an electronic version of the survey can be accessed via this link.
Friends of Grange Field
The Parish Council would like to create a Friends of Grange Field group to work in partnership with them on the management and development of Grange Field. It is keen to find people who would like to be involved in 'The Friends of Grange Field' through this consultation. Please contact the Parish Office if you are interested in being part of something which ensures Grange Field becomes and remains an important amenity for Charlton Kings.

Bulb planting on Grange Field - October 2020
In October 2020, the Parish Council purchased an assortment of spring bulbs including crocuses and several varieties of daffodils. Volunteers from Charlton Kings in Bloom have now planted the bulbs on Grange Field. We greatly appreciate the help from Charlton Kings in Bloom and look forward to a beautiful floral display in spring 2021.
