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.

Here is an article describing the areas in more detail. This extract was originally due to be in the April’s edition of the village mag and was written well before the lock down.

Traffic Problems in st Margaret’s

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
