GOLD AWARD for WILLINGHAM NEWS.

Well done to everyone who has made a contribution to the magazine, been part of the Editorial team, and finally the distribution team, who have kept us up to date with Village news and events.

They recently received a GOLD award for ‘The Best Village Magazine’ from Cambridge Evening News.

HCVs and TRAFFIC THROUGH the VILLAGE.

The Council has continued to gather data and liaise with County and District Councils regarding this ongoing issue.

In the past few weeks active monitoring of traffic through the village has been carried out in Station Road and Earith Road.

A logger was installed for one week, to record traffic data including; date/time/speed/direction/type of vehicle.

Separate monitoring of four two hour sessions at different times was used to record; date/time/speed/direction/colour/model & chassis type/company name.

DISTRICT COUNCIL SURGERY.

Dawn Percival our District Councillor recently held a surgery to which there was a small response. The next surgery is on 27th

October in The Ploughman Hall from 11a.m. until 12noon. These surgeries provide an opportunity to come and share your concerns with the District Councillor so that advice and help can be given.

VILLAGE PARKING.

Inconsiderate parking in many places around the village is making it difficult for other road users and pedestrians to use the roads safely.

Recently, this has become a problem at the entrance to Saxon Way, virtually creating a ‘one lane’ road.

We would encourage you to bear in mind where you park and consider the needs of other road users.

REPORTING PROBLEMS.

Unfortunately, there have been several reports of anti-social behaviour and vandalism around the village in recent weeks.

The council would encourage parishioners to report such incidents to the Police.[see below]

Other problems can be reported directly to the District and County Councils[see below]

Extra blue bin recycling?

The District Council recently posted a video on social media to highlight how residents should leave occasional extra recycling next to their blue bin. They have introduced new guidelines because their new collection vehicles have higher openings than their old trucks, so they needed to change the way they collect extra recycling.

You can view / share the video by watching it on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/qRLckclhwG4

For more information, see www.scambs.gov.uk/changes-to-the-way-we-collect-extra-recycling

Residents who regularly have extra recycling can order a free additional blue bin by requesting one at www.scambs.gov.uk/recycling
