Dear Sir or Madam

NOTIFICATION OF ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE WORKS - A52 Lees Barn Road to Golf Road (Stage 1)

I am writing to let you know that we will be carrying out survey work on the A52 between Lees Barn Road and Golf Road.

During our scheme of work, we will carry out pavement investigation surveys.

The information we gather during these surveys will provide important maintenance data which we will use to develop future schemes along the A52.

When will the work take place?
We plan to start surveying the area on Monday 3rd August until Wednesday 5th

August. We will deliver our works overnight between 10pm and 5am. Please note that all our planned works are subject to change due to weather

conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

How will the work affect traffic?

To maintain a safe environment for our workforce and motorists, we will work under a full carriageway closure with local access only. During these full closures we will put in place signed diversions routes, which have been agreed with the Local Authorities. All carriageways will be open, as usual, outside of our working hours.

Maintaining safety during Covid-19

We are working hard to maintain the road network and are prioritising critical operational activities. This will help ensure that life-saving medicine, equipment, supplies and healthcare staff can travel to where they’re needed most.

All our sites have strict safeguarding measures, in line with Public Health England guidance, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and none of our sites are open to the public. All construction projects are closely monitored, and the situation is kept under constant review.

 

Please see map below for further information:

Thank you for your cooperation,

 

Shelford Parish Council  

 

 

 

MICK UNWIN

 

Sadly, on Friday 1st May, we learnt that Mick Unwin had passed away following a long illness.

 

Over the years Mick had played a huge part in our community serving as Chairman of the Parish Council, being an integral part of the Shelford Feast committee, organising the very successful bi-annual Street Market, and generally giving his heart and soul for the good of the village.

 

I’m sure you will all join in sending our condolences to Angela and their family, and giving our thanks for the impact Mick had on ourselves and our village.

SHELFORD WI

 

As well as our monthly meetings, held usually on the first Thursday of each month at the Village Hall starting at 7.30pm, we enjoy a range of activities.  There’s fortnightly walking netball, energetic and great fun; darts, where we regularly feature among the cup winners; walks, either along local footpaths or following themed trails in Newark; and occasional “specials”.

In September it was the chance to learn steel pan drumming (huge concentration required but huge satisfaction) and in November it’s the opportunity to make our own Christmas wreaths using foliage brought from our gardens as well as festive additions.  Our speakers are invariably excellent.  October brought local girl Carole Fisher talking about her Farming Year, and in November it’s Stacy Woodward, Service Lead for Insight Healthcare, on “Improving the mental health and well-being of the people we serve”.  Singularly appropriate, since the WI’s project this year is to do with mental health.

 

All are welcome to our meetings.  Entrance is free for your first visit and there’s always tea, coffee, cake or biscuits.
