Road Safety & Traffic in our Village
Presented by Ben Hamilton-Baillie

Venue: Ruyton XI Towns Village Hall

 Saturday 19th November 2016
At 3.00pm

The impact of HGV and speeding traffic on our village has been identified by the Parish Council as one of the chief concerns of the local community.

Ben Hamilton-Baillie is one of the UK's leading practitioners exploring ways to help parish and town councils work with their highway authorities to improve village centres and rural roads...making them safer.  This presentation is aimed at improving road safety in Ruyton and will help you understand the important factors influencing driver speeds and awareness, and outlines measures that can establish safer and more civilised use of public space.

Drawing on recent examples from across the UK and elsewhere, Ben will illustrate the key principles essential for coping with traffic in our rural villages.

It is important that there is local input; as such schemes are expensive and will reshape the village you know. The Parish Council needs your input to ensure:
We get it right!
You want us to do this!
Your prepared for the cost!

Everyone is welcome to attend; there is no admission charge.

A New Oak Sapling at Olden Lane, Ruyton XI Towns is to be planted, replacing the one shown above.

The Clerk has secured a replacement young oak sapling thanks to David at Shropshire Council. Is there a volunteer willing to keep an eye on our new tree, water it during the summer and generally give it a little TLC?
(Note no nappies or bottles involved !)

If your interested and can provide a helping hand please contact the Clerk, Sue Hackett; (contact details above) and I'll be glad to provide you with more details. We are hoping to plant the young newcomer in early December.

Christmas is a wonderful, joyful time of the year however it can be an expensive and stressful time for some; particularly for those experiencing hardship or distress. Did you know the Parish of Ruyton XI Towns has a small Charitable Fund that can help individuals living in the Parish who are in need?

Applications can be made to the Trustees through the Clerk to the Parish Council or the Church.  The range of help that can be given is comprehensive, although there are some restrictions on what a grant can be used for. 

If you know someone who you think could benefit, or you want to know more, please contact the Clerk or Cllr Ros Slowley; now Chair of the Parish Council.

Any applications will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
