Upgrade on the PROW

The upgrade on the PROW has been done. This was primarily up graded for the pupils of Colgate school to have a safer walk to the school.The pub agreed to allow parents to park in the pub car park in the hope that less cars will try and park in Blackhouse Road. The route will be celebrated by the school on 17th September.

 The upgrade will also mean any member of the public using this route,especially in winter will no longer have to cope with the muddy puddles.

The improvement was paid for with developer S106 monies so there was no cost to the Parish Council or WSCC.
