Tideswell Council Matters

Negotiations continue over the future of the village loos and we’re hoping much-needed work on the playground and carpark at Townhead will commence soon.

Meanwhile Tony, our occasional weeder, has hung up his trowel and we have appointed Danny, a gardener to tend council-owned areas. We’re also looking for a freelance handyman who can be called upon at times to do important maintenance work around the village. Details on the PC noticeboard.

Certain parts of the village have been suffering from articulated lorry drivers using Sat-navs to bring their trucks through areas where they shouldn’t. The council is aware of this and is looking into how this issue can be solved.

Another vehicular issue was discussed, the parking of vehicles on pavements in and around the Coop and the bank. Parking on pavements is illegal and is a nuisance to all users especially, those with prams, young children and the elderly.

The council will be writing to all local firms asking for their cooperation by asking their drivers not to park illegally.

On happier matters our annual “Good Eggs from the Village” Awards, otherwise known as the Community Award will be held in early July (7th) at The Horse and Jockey. It’s all hush-hush until then, but we have some worthy winners this year, again chosen from a strong list of potentials.
