(May 1996) Sibford Gower Parish Council

Water Works   #   Macmillan Way   #   Annual Parish Meeting

Thames Water will be carrying out major repair works in the village over the next few weeks. Pipes are being relined, or renewed where necessary. Hopefully this will improve the water pressure in all parts of the village.

Parking in Burdrop has become a serious problem and the Council has asked carowners in the affected areas to do their best to keep the road access clear.

The Macmillan Way – Britain’s Third longest Long-Distance Path opened on April 25th 1996. This path runs south-westwards from Oakham in Rolland to Abbotsbury in Dorset. It is called the Macmillan Way as it has been developed to increase public awareness of the Cancer Relief Macmillan Fund. The Macmillan Way is 235 miles in length and it follows existing footpaths (it passes through our parish), bridleways and byways, and small stretches of minor roads when these are unavoidable.

The Council has a copy of the 96—page guidebook (also available from all good bookshops at £5.99). Anyone who would like to see the guidebook before purchasing a copy please contact the clerk.

The Annual Parish meeting is on Friday 3rd May at 7.30pm in the Primary School Hall. Everyone is welcome. This is your chance to share your views about what you feel are important issues.

P. Berry, Clerk to Sibford Gower Parish Council
