Communication has been made with Highways regarding the improvement of school and village signs, especially improving the visibility of the school’s location.  Highways have promised to investigate further.  The parish council are awaiting feedback from the County Councillor and Highways.

Pot Holes
Due to the current economic climate and budgetary constraints Highways have informed us that they are only able to attend to defects that present the greatest danger to highway users.  The Highways inspector will continue to monitor the condition of the road and should the condition of the carriageway deteriorate to become dangerous he will arrange for any defects to be made safe.
