Maldon District Council have announced that the repairs to Hythe Quay will start on 5th October for 12 weeks. Whilst this work is being undertaken, the Quay will be closed to the public.
The improvements will address a number of issues that have required attention for some years and will also include several improvements that will make the quay a safer place for the public and barge operators alike.
As well as the entire front of the quay being sheet piled, mooring points, electrical supplies, water outlets, lighting, and a bollard and chain fence will all be included. The Council has been careful to ensure the design of the improvements reflects the areas status as a Conservation Area and one of our heritage sites.
This summer has seen a fantastic 'Get Active' taster session programme successfully organised by Maldon District Council's leisure and sports development team and delivered by local partners, venues and coaches.
The 14 sessions gave a total of 153 children the opportunity to take part in activities such as boxing, parkour, tennis, trampolining and football. The children, who were aged from 5 years to 14 years, together with all of the coaches, made the sessions enjoyable and accessible.
Councillor Ron Pratt, Chairman of the District Council's Community Services Committee, said; "It is really encouraging to see the uptake of young people wanting to experience new activities within the District and being signposted to some of our excellent local clubs where I hope they will continue their participation."
The new Maldon Tennis Club has been up and running for a couple of months since a successful launch in June, but the club needs more support from local residents to keep it running.
The club currently holds sessions on a Monday evening between 4pm – 7pm and Saturday mornings between 10am – 1pm.
Councillor Ron Pratt, Chairman of the District Council's Community Services Committee, said; "Tennis can be a great way for families to have some fun and experience one of the nation's most traditional sports. It is a great club for Maldon to have and it would be a shame if it fails to keep running due to low numbers."
