Friday 21st July 2017 - SNAP Meeting, PIling and Vilage Events

There is very little to say about the SNAP meeting on Monday evening, apart from the two priorities set at the last meeting will be carried forward into the next period. The priorities are speeding and high visibility patrols and speeding. With the height of the summer tourist season upon us it was felt the high visibility patrols were essential and unless drivers start keeping to the speed limits it is unlikely that this will ever be dropped as a priority. Figures provided by Community Speed Watch at the meetings prove that speeding is real and not perceived. Police checks cover not only speeding but also use of seat belts, mobile phones, the bus lane, insurance, MOTs and VDRS which include cracked light lenses, blown bulbs, worn tyres and illegal number plates.

The piling on the Hopkins Homes site continues throughout the day. Residents living near the development have received letters informing them, this work will continue for a further four weeks. There have been various stories going around about the piling but as none of them have been substantiated, I will not expand on these. I feel extremely sorry for those in close proximity who have to put up with the worst of the noise and vibrations. Depending on the wind direction, the incessant thumping can be heard in Suffield Park. It is a relief when it stops on a Friday afternoon and we can look forward to two days peace.

Peter has been helping this morning with erecting some of the marquees on the sports field, ready for the Village Fair on Sunday. There is more work to do tomorrow morning and again in the evening when the largest marquee will be erected after the cricket match has finished. I am having a stall at the Fair, to raise funds for local group and charity, Seal & Shore Watch. There will be plenty of games and activities throughout the day to keep everyone amused. But before we get to Sunday, there is Jazz at the Belfry Centre tonight and on Saturday, Glendon House are holding their annual fete.
