Road safety : congestion

The Parish Council has investigated the current traffic congestion in the village, including many lorries over the 7.5t limit.  

This is largely due to the ongoing roadworks on the A43 north of the Holcot roundabout, and the poor signage of the diversion via A508/A14. The PC has therefore raised this with Highways and obtained a commitment that the diversion signage will be substantially increased.

DANGER : Bales

You may have noticed that several fields around the parish have large bales in them. At the moment they are too wet to remove to storage.

Could you please ask your children not to play on the bales – they are extremely dangerous.

There have been a couple of recent incidences of children playing on the bales, and landowners have asked us to point out that there are substantial risks to life.

Please put it in your diaries and come along for an hour or so – we’ll have plenty of child-friendly picking too so it really is something for all the family.
