Work on the Village Club roof starts on Saturday

Work at the Village Club starts on Saturday when the scaffolding will go up ready to start repair work to the roof next week. The windows back and front will be done first followed by roof repair in January. It has been a long and uphill journey but, finally, we can make a start. May I take this opportunity to thank everyone who had helped get this project off the ground. Much more money is still needed so if anyone feels like raising cash for this cause remember the halls are always there for this purpose. Sue Worth s.worth999@btinternet.com...

Roadworks Wanbourne Lane and Ridgeway Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th October

Roadworks Wanbourne Lane and Ridgeway Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th October Access will be maintained but there will be delays: The roadworks to be conducted in Nettlebed are Micro-Asphalt resurfacing. Micro is a surface treatment which is laid over an existing carriageway to reseal and protect. Access for both roads will be maintained at all times, however due to the size of machinery utilised and a minimal curing time there may be a short delay to ensure the new surfacing is not comprised and the safety of both the workforce and the general public is maintained. Once on site the surfacing crew will liaise with anyone requiring access to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum. It may be beneficial for the surgery to advice their clients to allow a little extra time when attending an appointment. Currently the work is scheduled for Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th October, however this is subject to change as this type of treatment is weather susceptible so...
