The roadworks on Chapel Hill have now commenced. The contractor advises that, although the start was delayed, the roadworks should still end on May 17th 2019. Please note that there is also a road closure on Church St, Harston between 7th – 10th of May so both roads will regrettably be closed at the same time. This issue has been escalated to the County Council.
Attached is the agenda for an additional planning meeting on Wednesday 1st May. This notice was put up on the Parish Council notice boards on Thursday 25th April 2019.20190501 Planning Meeting
More than 20 people turned up on Sunday to tidy and clean the village, with an encouragingly high proportion of children taking part. Areas tackled included: Porkers Lane and River Lane; Harston Road; Wisbeys Yard; The Recreation Ground and Skatepark; Broad Lane to High Street; Wellhouse Meadow; High Street to Church Street and New Road footpath.
Three favourite quotes of the day:
- Passer-by to fellow Parish Councillor – “What did you get your ASBO for?”
- Husband to wife, child and dog when leaving home to help – “ It’s a really worthwhile thing you are doing!!”
- And child to her father – “Can we do this every month?”
A huge thank you to everyone who took part on Sunday and to the many villagers who litter pick on a regular basis when out walking.
