Local Highways Improvement Scheme

The Parish Council are pleased to announce that we have successfully applied to the Local Highways Initiative for funding to perform various work on the junction of High Street and the A1307. We have been awarded £7,000 that will go towards the work which will include much improved pedestrian access between the far side of the road and the village, and improvements to the bus shelters on both sides.
