We have received various emails from residents of the Village expressing their concern over the speed of vehicles that come through, and also people allowing their dogs on the playing field and not picking up after them.
Decision was made that we should look into getting signage to reduce the speed from 30mph to 20mph. We should also once again speak to the village about getting traffic calming within the village. Cllr Perrin has suggested that we should look at getting yellow lines on the bend by the Chequers Pub, to stop people parking.
With regards to dogs being on the field this is down to the Sports and Social Club.
