Castle Hill Farm - Update

25th April 2018

We are doing some work to tidy the place up and are proceeding with the refurbishment of the listed cottages this year.

The remaining development site though, to be candid has just created issue after issue. Following our planning application judgement, we have done some extensive work on the site and invested time and money into quantity surveying and a supplier tender to find that the cost of the work is hugely prohibitive, to the extent where we would lose circa £1m as a result of undertaking such work.

Speed Watch Group

20th April 2018

This initiative has run for the past two years with some limited success.

Unfortunately, due to the small number of volunteers coming forward it is becoming impossible to sustain teams of three to run the watch scheme during the weekly sessions.

A new co-coordinator is also required to take over the management of the scheme.
