PARENTS CAR PARK AT SCHOOL

A pedestrian walkway will be installed along either side of the car park to enable parents and their children to enter and exit the car parking area in a more controlled way. White lines will be applied forming a walkway with pedestrian symbols in front of the parking bays, a crossing point will be marked and signed at the entrance of the car park to enable people to cross from one side to the other.

This work will take place tomorrow Friday 23rd Nov (weather permitting).

We would encourage parents to discuss these changes with their children and remind the car park users that this will only be an improvement if vehicles and pedestrians use the car park in a safe and courteous way.

Please do not block the walkways with your vehicles.

Please use the walkways when entering or exiting the car park are on foot.

GRIT BINS

Your Parish Council is delighted to inform the village that, in preparation for winter conditions, additional grit bins are being delivered next week. We have agreed to share the cost of providing these with JME Civils and JME will also meet the cost of filling them next week. Nine new bins will be delivered, bringing the total in the village to 12 – a huge improvement. The location of the bins has been considered carefully in the light of experience from last year, and is shown in this plan.

The grit is intended for use on the roads, in the most difficult areas, and is NOT for personal use on driveways or footpaths. Please buy your own for that. We would kindly ask you to respect this request, otherwise tfunding to refill them may not be available, meaning they are empty when motorists need them most. Thank you in advance.

(Apologies for the quality of the picture – it is a little better on the Facebook page)

SAFETY NOTICE – BRIDGE CROSSINGS

The bridge crossings over the central drainage ditch on long Meadow have been installed this week, we hope to be able to open all 3 crossings by the end of the week.

I would like to take this opportunity to ask parents across the development to remind their children
that the bridges are to be walked across, under no circumstances should the railings be climbed on
or over. One of the crossings was opened this afternoon and children have been reported to have
been climbing along the outside of the railings and underneath the bridge itself.

We trust that you can help get this important message across.

DEFIBRILLATOR FOR THE VILLAGE

Your Parish Council is pleased to announce the provision of a defibrillator for the village. It will be located outside the Welcome Centre in the near future. We thank Little Stanion Farm Management Company for funding this. Training in its use will be offered to residents.
