Over the next few days the forecast is for quite a bit of snow. During this time, please look out for elderly neighbours or those who may need assistance and whose carers can't get through. Sometimes all it takes is a quick phone call or a knock on the door to check all is ok. Thank you
You will remember the disruption a badger's sett caused to the Shingle Street Road last year? Unfortunately the badgers are back again and trying to re-dig their sett. SCC Highways are aware of and are monitoring the situation and measures to prevent the sett being dug under the bridge again were taken.
If you own a hedge that abuts the highway, please ensure it is kept cut back to your boundary. Hedges that overhang roads and paths can cause pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders to move in to the middle of the road or off the pavement and this in turn can cause other road users to swerve or break heavily.
The first Hollesley Parish Council meeting of 2018 will take place on Thursday 18th January, 7.30pm in the Village Hall. We look forward to seeing you there.
Until 16th February 2018 a 100% replica of the Bayeux Tapestry will be on display at Riduna Park in Melton.
Hollesley Parish Council welcomed Hazel Hughes as a co-opted Councillor at their December meeting. Hazel is a midwife and has lived in Hollesley over 30 years. We wish Hazel the very best in her career as a Parish Councillor.
Please be aware that Hollesley Parish Council meetings are moving to the third Thursday of each month, starting from January 2018.
For a few months now Hollesley PC has been down to just 10 members. The December agenda will be the last where the item of co-option of a new Councillor is on the agenda; until someone assures us they would like to join.
Woods Lane in Melton is to be closed for 4 weeks in November and 12 weeks in early 2018. The following is a message from Suffolk County Council:
You may have seen in the press recently, reports that Woods Lane in Melton is to be closed for a number of weeks.
Unfortunately details of the closure keep being amended and there are no details of diversion routes at present. However, it is highly likely that Woods Lane will be closed for a significant number of weeks, possibly starting in October and carrying on in to 2018. It is reported that the closure will be lifted over the Christmas holiday period and for specific days in December.
The reason for the closure is to allow of the new sewer connections for the development at the top of Woods Lane and for highways amendments to the entrance to the site.
