You may have noticed coming down Clyffe Hill that we now have a smart new “Please Drive Carefully” Parish sign. So a big thank you goes to Ian Fraser for designing and organising this.
You may also have noticed at the top of the hill that the Bupton / Lyneham signpost has had a facelift
Soon to be installed for the Whitehorse Way are the Kissing gates which should improve access through the fields.
On which subject you may have heard the unfolding saga of the escaped highland bull, which could be followed on Next Door and U tube. Two cows and the bull were allowed access to Clyffe through a gate having been left open. The two cows were located and returned to the field with the help of several residents equipped with torches but the bull remained undercover until he was found the following morning at North Farm in Bushton – but not before getting his mugshot taken at Applecart Farm on Wood Street.
Though amusing in hind site it could have been very serious had walkers been confronted with this vision in the half light.
PLEASE REMEMBER the COUNTRYSIDE CODE…………………..
NO DOG POO………
And ALWAYS CLOSE GATES after you
You may have noticed the tall posts that have been installed along the Withy bed. These are to take a SID ( speed indicator device ) which will flash the speed limit at anyone traveling too fast. More importantly they will give us accurate information on speeding traffic which can be reported to the authorities for action .
We now need to beg, borrow, or share a SID, which is being actioned.
