Ken Harwood's weekly news roundup (Posted 05/04/2017)

Crawley Down Road - sewer works
Glass on RoadJust a reminder that sewer works are in progress off the Crawley Down road in Wheelers Way. The work will then migrate into Crawley Down Road which may then be closed between 10th to 14th April.


Unwanted callers
Funny dog pic (Click on picture to enlarge). One of our mature residents in the village received an unwelcome caller who then tried to sell his household wares.The resident told the man to leave but as he did so, he removed the gate from its hinges and left it in the path. I would ask that everyone keeps an eye open for our more vulnerable neighbours, in case this starts to re-occur.


Recycled waste collection-Glass on road
glass on road I reported recently about a recycling lorry dropping glass onto the road whilst out there collecting our rubbish. Biffa dealt with the complaint very quickly and had the road swept.
