Improved safety for our schoolchildren

We are delighted that, with the support of GCC Highways department, today has seen the installation of a pedestrian guard rail outside the main entrance to Longborough Primary School.  The school entrance is on a busy part of the village road system, where vehicles are in close proximity to schoolchildren at the beginning and end of the school day.  The guardrail will improve safety for schoolchildren, teachers, parents and pedestrians alike and we’re happy that it has been installed in time for the new school year starting in the autumn.

Ash Dieback – Replanting Scheme

You may be aware that in 2020, GCC Highways launched their “Ash Dieback” project to start to tackle the effects of the disease within the county.  Ash Dieback damages tree’s limbs and causes them to become unsafe, which can lead to the death of a tree.

Since June 2020, GCC Highways has managed to remove 2,400 infected Ash Trees which posed a danger to highway users. They are now moving into their replanting phase and are encouraging local parish councils to identify suitable areas for replanting and for parish councils to make appropriate replanting applications to GCC Highways.

We would therefore ask that if anyone living in the Parish has had to have tree felling carried out due to Ash Dieback, please let us know by contacting any Councillor, or the Clerk directly, and we will be happy to submit a replanting request. Planting will take place in February amd March.  Please note that the deadline for us to submit applications is January 29th 2021.  Relevant contact details can be found here.
