Bus Shelter Blues

Widford Icon 2

At some time over the last few weeks a vehicle, perhaps a bus or a lorry, managed to clip the bus shelter in the village causing a fair degree of damage. Unusually the Parish Council owns the bus shelter which was the result of a generous gesture by a Widford resident.
The Parish Council has a number of options. Replacing or repairing the shelter is an expensive option, even a license from Highways to dig up the pavement would cost nearly £1,000. The bus shelter will always be vulnerable because f the camber of the road and it has been suggested that it is removed altogether.
The Parish Council would very much welcome your views, so please use the contacts page to let us know.

Gigaclear Update

Gigaclear are now have a new contractor and work on the new fiber network has restarted. As part of the contract the new company, Europoll Services Ltd, have been asked to inspect the work done by the original contractor and remedy any problems that they might find.
As a result they are currently sending cameras through the pipes which have been laid in Nether Street and Benningfield Road. The intention is not to open up any of the ground works unless they find a problem.

Suspicious Activity

A resident living in Levenage Lane has reported two stocky men in a dark blue or black BMW 4×4 who pulled up and carefully inspected their car. The police were of course informed and asked that all suspicious activity be reported to Stephen Blanks our local PCSO. He can be reached on 01707 354192.

Parish Council Vacancy

Unfortunately one of our councillors has resigned because of work commitments leaving a vacancy on the Parish Council and we are now looking for someone to step into the breech. Glen Parcell has been on the Parish Council for several years and will certainly be missed. For more information please speak to Jill Buck or one of the other councillors.
