Repairs to Hartford Bridge on the A556, known locally as the Blue Bridge, will begin on Friday 6 November and will involve a contraflow traffic system while these essential works take place. The bridge has suffered from damage caused by a vehicle strike.
The main works will involve the temporary closure of the A556 westbound traffic lane at the Blue Bridge, Hartford, from Friday 6 November until Sunday 29 November. However, traffic in both directions will be maintained using a contraflow system on the dual carriageway. The speed limit will also be temporarily reduced to 30mph through the contraflow to ensure public and workforce safety.
A quiet season for bowlers has now drawn to a close. Because of Covid 19 fewer bowlers have been able to make use of the green and club this season.
Unfortunately this reduced attendance has been taken advantage of by local vandals and the police have had to attend. A number of established conifer trees have deliberately been damaged with the express intention of killing them. It is infuriating and saddening to think that people would intentionally damage the trees at what is widely regarded as an attractive village asset. Covert CCTV cameras have now had to be installed to monitor unwanted activity at the club.
Local PCSOs Bradley Siddall and Nichola Devey commented: “We have recently been in contact with Cuddington Bowling Club in regards to a complaint of trees being vandalised at the site. This is a massive let down for the local area and something which we do not like to see. Please ensure that we are taking care of our local facilities in the area, as this a massive privilege to have on our door steps in the community. Following on from speaking to the bowling club, we will ensure to be visibily present to tackle any crime around the bowling club, this will be a focus area moving forward. The local PCSO shall be liaising closely with the bowling green moving forward to investigate the damage done.”
Weaver Vale Housing Trust kindly offered to renovate the kiosk in Poplar Close in readiness for the defibrillator being installed. Signage will be placed in the community advising of the location once the defibrilator is installed. Cuddington Parish Council shall be working with The Community Heartbeat Trust.
The Consecration of the extension of Gorstage Cemetery took place on Wednesday 23rd September. The Bishop of Birkenhead lead the service.
Due to COVID -19 restrictions, there will be no parade nor church service. There will be a wreath laying service with ONE person only in attendance to lay the wreath for the organisation concerned.
