The footpaths committee take action to investigate reports of matters brought to the parish council as well as undertake inspections of their own. Findings are considered and appropriate recommendations are put forward to the parish council for consideration.
The Parish Council are organising the annual Spring litter pick for Saturday 14th April 2018, meeting in the Primary School car park on Wheelbarrow Castle at 9.30am. All equipment will be provided, including gloves, bags, hi-vis vests and litter grabbers. Please spread the word and come along to spend an hour making our village a cleaner place. All ages are welcome. If you can definitely make it please let our Parish Clerk know so we can make sure we have enough equipment. Thank you and see you on the 14th!
High probability of snow week commencing 26th February 2018
The Met Office weather forecast for next week indicates that there is a high probability of snow starting Monday evening and overnight. It is too early to accurately predict where the snow will be heaviest and how much accumulation there will be.
Day time and overnight temperature are likely to remain very cold for the few days afterwards so any snow that does accumulate is likely to remain.
Precautionary Salting operations will continue through-out the period and snow ploughs will be fitted when required to ensure main roads are kept open.
We are therefore advising Town and Parish Councils to be prepared to enact their Winter Management Plans if /when we issue an instruction to do so. We will continue to monitor the Met Office advice over the weekend and will issue a further update on Monday 26th February 2018. If the situation changes significantly over the weekend we advise Town and Parish Councils to monitor the highways Twitter account for updates.
