United in Wanting the Best for our Rural Area
We aim to listen to what residents need, hold events for the community, hear the concerns of local groups in Mayfield, Rocester and Stanton. To find out what each area requires and help work towards that need. But we need your support.
We are a group of local people who this year formed the Mayfield and Rocester Neighbourhood Association. Backed by Trent and Dove Housing, MARNA wants to bring together the different groups in the communities, put on events – especially for children and older people, and contribute to much-needed community projects.
At the moment we are purely Mayfield-focused, but we hope eventually to also welcome people from Rocester and Stanton to our committee and serve our wider rural area.
Although we only formed in January, already we have held a cheese and wine for other groups to find out what the priorities are for the village. As a result of this we have organised the refurbishment of the old and tired Multi-Sport Games Area (MUGA / skateboard park) at the Mayfield Recreation Association, with the help of a donation and materials at cost from Buildbase and many volunteers from Mayfield and Trent & Dove volunteer. We also have plans for an outdoor gym and are helping revitalise the children’s playground.
Our events have raised funds for the outdoor gym, playground project, the Senior Social Club, the Wendy Club (Mayfield’s toddler group) and Santa’s annual tour around Mayfield. We are currently planning a children’s Christmas party in the Memorial Hall for the under-elevens with an entertainer, visit from santa and a party lunch. See who else we have helped.
