Volunteers for Siding Out!
Please come and join members of the Parish Council in widening the pavement up the Bringhurst hill towards school on Saturday 20th Oct at 10am. The process known as “Siding Out” just involves the use of a spade to remove the encroaching vegetation thus making the footpath much more user friendly. If you can spare a few minutes to help out (at your own risk) we would be most grateful. Please bring your own spade and enthusiasm – we’ll supply the biscuits! Remember – many hands make light work!

Proposal for Great Easton Village Gateways –
Each village entrance should be marked by rustic-style gates on either verge, linked up to the 30 limit. There will be new village signs and the whole village gateway will be tidied up. On the road, there will be “dragon’s teeth” similar to those already on Barnsdale, which will be supplemented by a “30” rounded and some white lines across the road. All this can be done for an outlay of around £1600.00, if local people are prepared to join in the installation of the gates.
We are also looking in to a flashing speed sign for Caldecott Road, similar to that in use at Hallaton duck pond but this would , of course be more expensive.
If anyone has any questions please email the Parish Council at email@example.com.
Farmers in the village have at various times in the past, raised concerns about walkers and dog walkers passing through Farmland on the designated footpaths/rights of way.
The Parish Council has been asked to remind residents and dog walkers to respect the limits of the various footpaths which pass through Farmland, to keep their dogs under control, particularly in fields of livestock, and to ensure that dog mess, which can be a hazard to livestock, is cleared up in the same way as it is in the village.
It is very shortly lambing time and all residents and dog walkers are asked to be aware of their responsibilities when walking in the countryside.
The landowner of the ‘old railway track’ has informed the Council that the current Agreement allowing public access to the track is to be terminated. As the current Agreement expires on 31 January 2018, access will not be permitted after that date. Residents are asked to note this change to access.
