Parish News - October 2016

Two bus shelters will be erected in the village – a “canopy” type shelter on the south side of Castle View, by the Notice Board and a more traditional enclosed shelter by the entrance to Piper Road Estate. The Parish Council will fund one shelter - the other will be funded by an extremely generous donation from a resident for which the Parish Council is extremely grateful. At the time of writing I cannot confirm when the shelters will be installed but it should be before the winter.
Now the bridge has re-opened, a traffic speed survey has been requested. This will focus on the three main entrances to the village and a further one half way along Castle View.
Malcolm Cairns will be the “Village News” correspondent for the Hexham Courant. His email address is: - Many thanks to all those who had expressed an interest.

November’s meeting will be on the17th, the last one for 2016.
Margaret Davenport
Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council
