Streetlights in The Ridings

Streetlights in The Ridings

We are aware of the issues with the street lights in The Ridings, our street light contractors have visited and have advised that the columns have no power going to them, so they're unable to solve the problem.

We have raised this with Western Power (who supply the village with power) and have asked them to visit as a priority.

Vandalism at Rascals/Village Hall

Vandalism at Rascals/Village Hall

It was sad to see this morning when arriving to work that one of the tubs that had been planted by children of Rascals had appeared to be vandalised/tipped over.

Thankfully staff from Rascals were able to replant this before any children arrived which saved additional upset.
