A small bit of good news: we’ve noticed that a few of the older and damaged signs around the village have been replaced recently. If any villagers reported some of these to the council then thanks!

There were defective and worn out signs in Wheel Road, Burgate Lane and Reeders Lane. Some of them were reported late last year by the Parish Council, and we’re pleased that they’ve been selected to be fixed at this difficult time.

The author’s personal understanding is that these sorts of things are (perhaps understandably) usually low priority for the county council to fix, but they are currently only able to carry out certain works because of coronavirus restrictions, and it looks like this has allowed these items to come to the top of the list.
