ERYC have given details regarding this year’s Streetscene exercise.  A team will commence in village at beginning of next month to cut grass and sweep streets and to undertake basic tasks such as minor pothole repairs, street asset painting, sign repair and washing, and cutting back of overgrown vegetation.  This will carry on until October. Also a walkabout will take place this year on Friday 11 May in the Parish where Streetscene Services identify routine works within the built up part of village.  Councillors were requested to notify the clerk of any routine works that need to be brought to the attention of Streetscene Services and to ensure any issues are identified prior to the walkabout for inclusion on the day.
