Parish News - February 2013

PC Cross, Community officer, attended the January meeting and spoke about a new speed device unit, which is now available in the local area. He advised he had already received positive feedback from this but it needed time to get the message across to drivers. PC Cross was also hoping to re-educate cyclists when using the bridge over the Tyne and would be liaising with the likes of Sustrans and local schools.

As well as refurbishing/repairing windows at the Pavilion, work is due to start on upgrading the BMX track soon. Grants have been received in part for the BMX track and the Parish Council is only pledging a relatively small amount towards the cost.
Apologies for the incorrect date for the February meeting which will have been held on 14th February and not the 21st as previously stated. I do hope no-one turned up on the 21st!.

Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council
