Line Closure Salisbury to Yeovil from Saturday 10 to Sunday 18 December
We are writing to let you know that 9-days of consecutive work will begin between Salisbury and Yeovil Junction from Saturday 10 December. We'll be renewing the track at Perretts Bridge by Tisbury station as well as installing tactile paving at Gillingham and Sherborne railway station. Whist at these stations we will also be working on our drainage systems
Further to my recent post, I have heard from Openreach today:
We have been awaiting additional civils and traffic management to allow us to complete this cabling most of which has now been completed or workarounds found.
We are looking at picking up the pace with the build over the next couple of weeks. So hopefully without any further stoppers we are into the closing stages of this project.
The Parish Council is happy to announce the installation of the new multi-play unit - The Galahad - in the playing field.
We're so grateful to all those in the community that gave their time so generously to raise money towards the purchase of this play equipment which will be such a popular replacement for its much-loved predecessor.
Particular thanks go to:
Following the Parish Council’s unsuccessful attempt to have Gollop's Ground designated a Village Green, the Chair and Vice Chair and two other residents met with the landowners on Friday 3rd September in Gollop's Ground.
The landowners rejected the Parish Council's proposal to lease or purchase the field for the continued use of the community.
You may know that the Parish Council was asked by members of the public present at the Ordinary Parish Council Meeting of June 1st 2021 to apply to Dorset Council to have Gollop’s Ground registered as a Village Green since, in the terms of the Commons Act, the field had been used as one for as long as anyone can remember and as far as we know, at least from the 1880’s.
