Agreement has now been reached with insurers regarding replacement of the speed signs
at the north and south ends of the village. New signs will be affixed to the nearest
lamppost ,with power drawn from that supply instead of solar panels which so evidently
proved an irresistible target to thieves.
Remember that the police are making random speed checks around all Harewood Ward
parishes, so please continue to exercise your usual care and respect the speed limits.
This is even more important now that school holidays are upon us.
We have a table tennis table initially for the next six weeks, under the national
‘Ping’ scheme. If it is well used and treated properly we can keep it (free of charge)
and we will consider getting a second one. 5-a-side football nets have also been
installed. Picnic tables will, unfortunately, take a few weeks but seats are available
in the meantime.
TIDYING UP JOBS
We have appointed a contractor to do lots of little groundwork jobs around the village.
They will (for example) be cutting back vegetation at Jubilee Field, near the Play
Area and at Strawberry Hill near the Royal Oak pub. The low boundary fence near the
Play Area will be repaired and the notice board at the south end of the village will
be refurbished shortly.
Just to re-iterate, Aberford village now has access to BT Infinity services. This
has long been an objective of the Parish Council, and has been delivered under the
umbrella of “Superfast West Yorkshire”. Many thanks to all concerned with the delivery
of this project.
