HIGHWOOD ROAD CAR PARK
The Village Trust is advising that the major drainage and car park improvements are proceeding well and expected to be complete by FRIDAY 26th SEPTEMBER. That part of the car park in front of and beside the village hall is closed and there is regrettably no access to the playground. The entrance to the hall is via the doors by the rear patio. The lower part of the car park remains open and both pedestrian and vehicular access to the Parish Council Office and the Village Hall is via the gate closest to the Parish Council office. TWO WAY TRAFFIC is operating.
As a temporary measure the recycling bins have been removed and people are being asked to use those in the station yard.
