Community Speed Watch
The Parish Council has received a request from some residents to implement this scheme, but unless more volunteers come forward, we will be unable to. Full training will be provided by the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership – please e-mail your name and contact details to the Clerk.
If you have any suggestions or would like to see something new in the village, please let us know via e-mail or letter to the Parish Office. We are also asking for your ideas with regard to the use of the bowls green at Manor Park (ideas received to date include a MUGA, outdoor gym, mini tennis, cricket nets and an extension to the 3G pitch) and creating a wildlife area around the lagoon off Sudbeck Lane.
Dog fouling is again becoming more prevalent around the village on the footpaths and alleyways, please take a bag with you and pick up after your pet; placing it in a dog or litter bin. If you have any suggestions as to where additional bins can be installed, please let the Clerk know.
