Speeding – the Speeding Working Party, set up by the Parish Council to address the perennial problem of speeding vehicles through the village is focussed and working upon trying to mitigate against this problem. The Parish Council has agreed to provide 30mph bin stickers to all households in the village that are sited on a main road. 4 stickers will be distributed to each relevant house, 2 for each of the green and grey bins. It is hoped that this ‘communal message of 30mph’ will have the desired effect.
