Cosgrove Parish Council Update
Work to rebuild the bridge, damaged when it was struck by a vehicle back in March, is underway. The work will be a lengthy process, as each stone block is crafted to reconstruct the bridge as it was originally built. Traffic lights will control traffic movement over the bridge until the work is finished.
Concern continues to be raised over vehicles driving through the village at unacceptable speeds. Drivers are reminded that our village roads are congested at this time of year, requiring vehicles to reduce speeds and make allowance for young & old pedestrians, parked cars, uneven roads and traffic lights at the bridge. Please remember that speed restrictions apply when entering and leaving the village.
Playing field equipment
After appeals from parents in the village to open the play area, it was decided to allow the play equipment to be used. Parents are reminded that the play area is not supervised, there is no provision for sanitising equipment and no hand washing facilities. Please ensure that extreme caution is taken when using the equipment. The Parish Council strongly recommend that the Risk Assessment, attached below, is read before children use the play equipment.
The two new planters placed on the verge next to the flag pole at the crossroads are now displaying a fine variety of plants. Anyone available to assist with watering during dry and warm weather, please let a Parish Councillor know.
It is planned to make this a focal point for everyone with additional seating soon to be added.
Two plots of land have now been identified and agreed with the landowner, to provide allotments for interested Cosgrove residents. If you wish to register your interest in an allotment plot, please speak to, or email Jeff Proctor. Residents living close to the two plots have been consulted by letter and responses to concerns raised, have been communicated. Developments will be posted as they materialise.
