Severn Trent Roadworks

Severn Trent Roadworks

We have just been told that Cotton’s Lane will be closed for 5 days from Wed 24th Feb for Severn Trent to carry out sewerage repairs. This will mean a lot of extra cars will be parked on Elmley Rd and possibly Gorse Hill.

The contractor will be Amey. The job ref: 12440484 and contact tel no: 01785 624150.

We will try and find out the situation regarding access for emergency services and deliveries. Feel free to make your own enquiries if you prefer.

Apologies for the short notice, but we had no advance warning of this.

A46 Roadworks Update

A46 Roadworks Update

Update just received from Highways England regarding roadworks between Teddington Hands and M5:

‘Due to a sub-zero temperature forecast, we’ll be unable to carry out any surfacing operations for the next 3 nights (10 February, 11 February and 12 February). I can confirm tonight’s closure of the A46 will still be in place, this will be to carry out non-surfacing works. We’ll review our programme, and provide further updates in due course. I appreciate this is far from ideal, but the current situation is out of our control, and simply down to weather.I apologise for any inconvenience caused.’

Missing dog

A dog named Milo went missing at about 3pm yesterday in Ashton. Milo was new to the family and is a rescue dog, so could be trying to get back to a previous home or perhaps the rescue centre in Evesham.
Milo is fairly shy and very fast. He is young and fit so could be anywhere. If you think you have seen him, please contact us or call Penny on 07432 558335. Thank you.

Fantastic fundraising for the Air Ambulance!

Fantastic fundraising for the Air Ambulance!

In 2003, Christine and Jeremy King started leaving a few cuttings and other plants outside Bredon Holt’s garden gate for residents to take for their own gardens. The Kings just suggested people leave a donation for the Air Ambulance.  Fast forward 17 years and I am sure they never imagined that they would raise the impressive figure below!! Many congratulations to them, and as the poster says, thanks to all those who have donated over the years.  

The Midland Air Ambulance charity is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulance helicopters and two critical care cars in the area, including Worcestershire. Since 1991, the charity has responded to more than 60,000 missions, making it one of the longest established and busiest air ambulance organisations in the UK.  

The Midland Air Ambulance charity does not receive funding from the Government so relies on the support of local people like the Kings. For more information visit their site: opens in a new windowMidlands Air Ambulance
