Please continue to report deep potholes; this can be done directly on the County Council website under the “report” section.

Thank you to all landowners who have trimmed hedges next to the highway.

Please go and have a look and make use of the library in the telephone kiosk in Dunley: thank you to Mrs. Linda Tidmarsh for organising this.

Footpaths and bridleways

Unfortunately, the County Council grant which we use towards maintaining our network has been unexpectedly cut this year. Despite this, thanks to the efforts of our footpath officer – Catherine Macdonald – our wonderful network of footpaths and bridleways are being kept open for our enjoyment. As we all know, the best way to keep paths open is to get those boots on and walk them! Go on ……. treat yourselves to a lovely Autumn walk- If you find any obstructions, broken stiles or spots where a waymarker would be useful please contact Catherine on 878722.Please keep to the rights of way – if you are unsure and need advice about routes, again please contact Catherine.

Roads and Traffic Speed

Please don’t forget the Clerks log of “near miss” traffic incidents.

Please report all potholes, build up of soil or sand, lying water, overgrown hedges; or in fact any danger or hazard to users of our roads and lanes. Remember that if you wish, your call will remain confidential.

Just to remind you – fines for failing to wear a seat belt have doubled …… you have been warned!
