New 20mph Speed Limit
The speed limit in the vicinity of the Community School in East Street i.e. in the Old Village has been reduced to 20mph. The new speed limit was achieved as a collaboration between the parents of the school and the Parish Council in the interest of safety. Please notice the 4 sets of new signs on the roads leading to the Queen’s Head crossroads. They apply until the 30mph signs are reached. As most of the 20mph zone is a conservation area it was felt that too much street furniture and signage would be out of keeping with the character and rural ambience. However, the circular signs are compulsory and apply at all times, not just school days. Please pass on this news to everyone you know who drives through the Old Village.

Now that some of our traditional finger posts have been beautifully restored, we notice in contrast those that have yet to be restored. You can be reassured that through a carefully planned budget, the programme of works will continue throughout the coming year.
