This is a small but pragmatic step which could improve the flow of traffic and the safety of our pedestrians. With your support we could achieve something within the next few months.

and putting this in context with other traffic proposals in the village working with the Gridlock group
Gridlock are a group of concerned pro-active local residents who are analysing the flow/congestion of traffic in the village and are fighting to get traffic improvements. It is working with full support of the Parish Council, but as a separate entity they are able to think outside the box and plan big. New members always welcome – please contact Aiden at email@example.com
