As part of the installation of a power cable to the new hub development, Supermarine Road and Stirling Road will have roadworks on the following weekends: 6th – 7th January 2018 and 23th -14th January 2018. Both roads will still be open although they will have a lane closure in place.


Highworth Road cable installation

Starting this Thursday, 30th November, work will begin on installation of a power cable in the verge on Highworth Road as you come round the corner from Supermarine Road. This work will last approximately three weeks.

The Parish Council are continuing to liaise with the company responsible for the work and will update as needed.

Please ensure you leave extra time for journeys in case of delays.

Help others have a safe Halloween

Halloween is next week and although trick and treating is enjoyed by some, it can be distressing for others who may be frightened by a knock at the door when it is dark. If you wish to avoid trick or treaters knocking at your home, below are a number of posters which can be printed. Please do share with neighbours or family members you believe would prefer to remain undisturbed.

If you plan to go trick and treating please ensure you check the window of the home you are about to knock at. If you see a poster, please do not knock.

Can you help?

Blood is needed for treating a variety of illnesses and conditions as well as sudden trauma from accidents and emergencies so we greatly appreciate every donation. Just one donation can save and improve up to three lives

Donating blood is quick and easy and booking an appointment is even simpler!
