Thursday 19th October - Third session of bulb planting - nearly done now, the next session will be on Tuesday 24th 10am.

Spencer Way planting bulbs 2017 2

__________

Monday, 16th October - Following on from the Parish Council meeting two lanes have been given the go-ahead for Quiet Lane designation - Gutteridge Hall Lane and Mill Lane. Whilst Mill Lane may be problematic we feel it is entirely appropriate for Gutteridge Hall Lane. It will be interesting to see over the coming year whether people do take advantage of the knowledge that these two areas are for the use of ALL, not just cars, and we encourage walkers, cyclists, horse-riders and the public generally to enjoy these two areas, and make them people friendly!

News Flash - See Problem areas and potholes for update regarding the Station approach.

Wonderful turn out this morning for our monthly litter pick - 11 people turned up and we collected more than 15 black bin bags, plus car bits and pieces! Well done to everyone.Cool

Saturday, 14th October - Great fun this morning - 8 of us started planting the 4,000 bulbs around Spencer Way. We shall need further helpers during the coming week, so anyone with a few spare hours on Monday afternoon, or Thursday morning, please get in touch Cool

On other matters - Concerns have been raised regarding the Station approach, where there is carnage from broken windscreens and other debris all around the area, and the scrap yard barrier fences are all over the place. We have reported the situation/sent photographs to several departments of TDC and our local councillors.

20th Sept - LITTER - Angela and Colin have just had a very productive meeting with the manager of the local McDonalds. They are as keen as we are to assist in keeping Weeley tidy. They litter pick round their own area every hour, and will respond to phone calls regarding Crow and Crown lanes if there is a build up. They have an initiative called 'Love Where U Live', and are going to litter pick down Gutteridge Hall Lane, Mill Lane and Kempton Park at our request over the next few weeks, as we have noticed a large amount of debris in those areas. We are looking forward to a closer community relationship with McDonalds and will keep you informed of developments over the next few months. Keep a look-out for the WEELEY WOMBLES

26th August - 22 venues took part in the Garage Sale. Great time had by many taking part, a really enjoyable, social time, selling unwanted items, reducing clutter with neighbours meeting up, and lots of new friends made. We'd encourage many more to take part next year and make it a really festive occasion - more like street parties in fact!

Here are some of the stall holders having a good time!

8th August - A really successful Coffee morning - 37 members attended, even though many familiar faces were missing, so well done all of you. Very chatty morning, and there is now only one seat left on the coach outing for Bury St Edmunds.

6th August - Last Sunday litter pick, as I was the only one to turn up! Third Monday of the month is still popular, so that will be continuing. Several residents have again expressed concern about the lack of water in the Village Pond - so we will be writing to TDC to ask them to investigate this properly. There have been several communications regarding the Station approach.... nothing much moving forward, we await further developments.
