* The Parish Council has two current vacancies for Parish Councillors. These vacancies may be filled by co-option onto the council at the next full parish council meeting (Thurs 12th Sept). If you are interested in taking on this role and serving your community or wish to discuss the role in more detail please contact Denise Maughan [email protected]

*Massey's Folly is being worked on and it's expected to last 3-4 weeks: "The building is soaking wet and deteriorating and the Administrator was keen to make a start to remove the materials that have been used that are not approved or fit for purpose, and clear the externals following ongoing worries by the neighbours.  Nothing to do with the fabric of the building will be removed....No actual works will be undertaken to the building without consent or prior approval. ‘’ EHDC

* Barleywood Farm Lane (Gaston Lane) HCC Update 09/07: "The traffic management at this site is being monitored by our area teams so hopefully is rectified quickly when it is moved. As regards to the permanent solution, we are still working on the design for this. We are actively engaged with our contractor and also the flood management team to ensure that the right solution is implemented. As such I will not be able to provide you with an update on timescales at this point but I will do as soon as we have a programme in place."

* Road Signage - Please Keep it Clear: Please would all householders who have foliage that grows close to or overhangs advisory/mandatory road signs such as speed limits, road names or direction signposts to keep these well clear for good visibility from 20-30 metres. Lack of visibility of speed limits and stop signs is dangerous and Hampshire Highways advise us that they have the authority to clear the foliage and charge the costs to the home owner.

* HELP TO KEEP DRAINS CLEAR - Would all those households with gravel drives in Upper Farringdon please ensure that the gravel does not drift onto the roads as this adds to blockages to street drainage resulting in flooding.

* Phones Boxes / Notice Boards: We are awaiting these being painted / oiled.
