Kings Bromley Voluntary Car Share Scheme

Published 11 October 2018

Kings Bromley Voluntary Car Share Scheme
Parishioners may not know that there is a scheme in place in the village whereby those without transport can ring a volunteer to see if they are able to transport them to the doctors, dentist, hospital etc. If you would like to know more about this please contact the Parish Clerk in the first instance by calling 07751603031. He will then put you in touch with the local coordinator.
Call for more volunteers.
At present there are around 8 volunteers with a further 3 recruits recently offering their services. More drivers are required. If you feel you have a few hours spare on the odd day then please put you name forward. To give you some idea the service was used last month on around 17 occasions so this is not a large commitment. Again contact the clerk on the number above.

Closure of Town Hill B5016

Published 2 October 2018

There has been much concern over this and the closure of the 812 bus route. The Parish Council has asked Cllr. Julia Jessel, the County Councillor for the Barton Area to see what can be done. This is her reply:

Dear Alan,

Richard Rayson (County Highways Dept.) is meeting with Amey to see if the 6 month period can be shortened and also if at times single file traffic can be allowed with traffic light control. In my temporary absence I have asked him the let the Parish Councils know if any improvements can be achieved.

Also I am waiting to hear back from the MD at Midland Classic regarding possible diversions to the bus route rather than stopping altogether.

Kind regards,


A38 road closures

Apologies for the lateness in getting this notification to you.
We (Kier) will be having closures on the A38 southbound for the next 4 nights, which will involve using the A515 as the diversion route. Hours of work will be 9pm to 6am and this will be for the signage work that has been taking place along the A38.
