Fundraiser for NHS on The Green

There was enough room in the shade of the village oak tree for everyone to sit and enjoy a meal in a box provided by the W.I. yesterday. It was a lovely to get together and have a chat again, thanks especially to the Cadent workers who drilled their trenches further away.

Temporary Road Closure - Oxenholme Lane

 The Chair of Natland Parish Council, David Peters writes:

Some of you may have noticed the legal notice in Thursday's (1 July) Gazette about a temporary traffic regulation order on part of Oxenholme Lane to enable Cadent Gas to "carry out replacement works". Vehicles will be prohibited from using the lane between A65 Burton Road and just past the Long Meadow Lane junction "when the relevant traffic signs are displayed". The Order will commence on 19 July and is expected to be required until 21 September 2021. Pedestrians and dismounted cyclists should be allowed through at all times.

This is the first official closure of the current project. More are expected, with considerable disruption to movement. The Parish Council is asking Cadent for information about its pipe renewal programme in Natland so that the whole community can be kept informed, not just the households directly affected.
