Parish "titbits"

The long promised speed alert sign will be in place during the next couple of months. After reams of paperwork and jumping very high hurdles – bearing in mind that the sign was agreed to be totally justified months ago by the County Council, and our Parish Council is footing the bill to try and keep us safer – it has been a frustrating slog but the sign has now been ordered. Our Parish Council is able to fund many community needs as 40% of its income is over and above precept, and this is how this project has been paid for. Drivers are urged again to respect life and law by keeping to the designated speed limit – 20 m.p.h. please.

The village green is to be spruced up during this spring budget has been found as described above. Timing will be subject to the contractor’s availability, but the work has been ordered and hopefully it will be completed by the beginning of May.

The current Homepage slideshow shows photos of early spring flowers all taken in the parish.Three of these are of the village green, which has been made to look so decorative by Buckland Brewer Gardening Club – thanks to all those who have cared for this space and other areas around the village entrance signs.
