You may be wondering where the new Village Sign project is up to. Well, it is good news. The actual sign is safely stored away and it looks stunning (we can’t wait to show it off). The metal surround is now in the process of being made, along with decorative scrolls and the whole frame will then be treated. It is hoped that the sign will be erected sometime in the late spring but we are also dependent on other third parties to carryout work so we can’t be precise.
The knoll is the small triangle of land at the bottom of School Road, where it meets The Street. This used to be the centre of the village with shops, a pub and the church. Please can we very politely ask that drivers do not park on this grass. The land is very soft and wheel markings then make the cutting of the grass much more difficult. Thank you.
A date for your diary….the 2019 Hollesley Litter Pick will be Saturday 16th March. Meet at the Village Hall at 9.30am. Please wear bright clothing and appropriate footwear. Gloves, picking sticks and sacks will be provided.
We are delighted to announce that three Footpaths Wardens have been appointed: Laurie Forsyth, Joanna van der Hoeven and Russell Davey.
Today sees the start of a 4 week closure of The Street in Hollesley; outside the Shepherd and Dog Inn. Please use the official diversions whenever possible and do not attempt to remove the barriers to drive through the road closure. If you witness anyone doing this please report this to the police on 101.
A great response was recently received to our plea for a Footpaths Warden to step forward. Three keen residents have put their name in the hat and the role will be split between them. If you notice an issue with a footpath please contact the Parish Council on 01394 411405
Further to a recent announcement from HMP & YOI Hollesley Bay (see page 19 of the September Village Voices) a Public Meeting has been arranged for:
