Neighbourhood Watch Notes for November - December 2018
1) It’s understood nothing much has changed – apart from the clocks – and all is quiet. Unless you’ve heard otherwise.
2) The situations with regard to the local road works:-
2.1) Town Street, having been resurfaced, is now looking ‘fit for purpose’. It’s hoped that those in the immediate area were not ‘put about’ too much.
2.2) St Michael’s Church Wall – Portway was shut for just for just one day whilst the Exploratory Boring task was completed. News, as to the timescales for the next phase is now awaited.
2.3) The Railway Bridge – on Alfreton Road (Derby).
Not immediately local but its closure has certainly caused traffic to ‘back-up’, when travelling to & fro from Derby – via Little Eaton. It has been reported that it will be open to one-way traffic by Monday 19th November (?)
As for completion – ‘finding’ £70k to complete the work will delay completion until 2019 !
2.4) The Gas Pipe work, on the A61 (between the Breadsall & Abbey Hill Roundabouts) certainly imposes another traffic back-up snag too – with its 30 mph limit. Not that all motorists observe it !
3) Following the ‘environmental odour’, that occurred some weeks ago now, it can be seen that the grass has certainly grown on the newly seeded fields –and that the Sheep are grazing the pastures. Back to normal one might say.
4) The Police are currently ‘thin on the ground’ – due to holidays and sickness. However a short message from Kilburn SNT has confirmed that, as far as they’re concerned, all’s quiet.
5) Just a couple of comments:-
5.1) If you are not receiving intermediate Neighbourhood Watch notes, and wish to do so, then please contact John Meggitt (details below).
5.2) The Scouts “Stamp & Deliver” service; which will commence on the first Monday of December – for about 3-weeks.
