The board is currently seeking other bids on the park light since DelMarva's bid greatly exceeded the allotted budget.Be sure to attend our community meeting on Thursday, July 27th for further updates.
Many thanks to Phil Allen for overseeing our pond maintenance.Phil, his wife, Lorna, and Chuck Trueman will be working to clean the ponds.Their efforts will mean big savings to the community in labor costs.
Chemicals have been purchased to rid the ponds of algae, cattails, and water primrose.This will help keep our ponds clean and enable our fountains to run without clogging.
The fountains are currently scheduled to run between daily.
The signs are here!Thanks to Chuck Trueman, Stacy Woods, and the previous board of Wynthorpe who all worked diligently in this effort.Lighting and landscape for the signs are currently being planned.
The community is currently in need of a webmaster for the Wynthorpe website.If you have computer skills in this area and would be willing to assist the community, please contact Chuck Trueman at 328-0362.The webmaster is responsible for maintaining and updating the website as approved by the board.The website is a great way for community members to receive up-to-date information on what is happening in Wynthorpe.
The board is working hard to improve the conditions of our playgrounds.Thanks to Linda Draper, her son, Hunter, and Trish Tatnall for working to remove the graffiti on the playgrounds.Work is in progress to remove the weeds from the playground areas and plans are being discussed regarding the vandalized equipment.If you see anyone vandalizing our playgrounds, please report it to the local police at 573-2800 and inform Chuck Trueman, WMC president, at 328-0362.
The community previously voted to not install trash receptacles in the community playgrounds due to cost concerns for trash removal.For this reason, it is critical that all residents take their trash with them when leaving the playgrounds.Let's work together to make Wynthorpe an attractive place for everyone.
Each property owner in Wynthorpe should have received a copy of the Declaration of Restrictions for the community upon settlement.If you do not have a copy of the Declaration of Restrictions, please contact Trish Tatnall at 328-0454 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
