Tuns Hill open again

The overflowing drain and manhole on Tuns Hill which forced the County Council to close the road has been fixed and the road re-opened.

The Parish Council joined many residents in pushing the county to take action once the flooding started and it was reported at our meeting that the work had been completed and the problem resolved.
TheParish Council will do what it can to put pressure on to get problems fixed and any issues with highways or other county council services can also be reported at http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/reportit.

Footpath Wardens

Our plans for a group of keen walkers who will keep an eye on our footpaths are moving ahead.
We have now had a handful of volunteers and David Boehm is currently working out the best way in which to divide up the village to make sure all our paths and bridleways are covered.

If you think you would like to help out then please get in touch – the more people we have, the more chance we have of keeping our rights of way in tip top condition.


We are also progressing with the plan to set up a telephone number for people who need the defibrillator in an emergency but can’t leave the casualty to fetch it.

Again we have had some volunteers but could do with another couple of people to add to the list.

Hopefully you will never be called on but it will be reassuring for people to know that there is help available and if your phone does ring all you will need to do is to be able to collect one of the defibrillators.

Success for Parish Council application

Back in 2006 in the Parish Council applied to add a length of public footpath at Hills Farm to the Definitive Map of public rights of way. The application was supported by 77 public evidence forms, claiming use of the route on foot and on horseback, and the council has just been told that the application was successful.

The stretch of path which runs from the track to Hills Farm up to Horses Ash Lane has been added to the definitive map as a Restricted Byway. This means that it is open to walkers, cyclists, horse riders and horses and carts – in fact everything except motor vehicles. This path has been used by generations and it’s good to see that the Council’s application has had a successful outcome.

Neighbourhood Plan

A number of people have come forward to offer their help with preparing a Neighbourhood Plan and a meeting is to be held in January after which the Parish Council will decide if it wishes to proceed.

And Finally……

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to everyone from the Parish Council.
