Re: Dartmouth Road
I notice from our community magazine, that the GRA is still proposing a 30-mph limit as being the only solution to the problem on this stretch of road.
I feel sure that if this were introduced, the mobile chicane that currently causes much frustration between Windy Corner and Clennon Valley at speeds as low as 25-mph, (in reality probably 22-mph), will encourage yet more vehicles to use Bascombe Road, which is not safe at over 30-mph, consequently moving the problem from the main road to a minor road.
I am still of the opinion that something needs to be done to stop motor bikes, and at times the odd car, from overtaking on the hatching on the main road between Greenway Road junction and Bridge Road.

Dear Sir, Heath Watkins has an advert on Page 45 of THE GAZETTE Issue 13. I have just had a small job done by him – yes I did say where I got his name.
If anyone asks, I found him a very friendly and helpful young man who did two other tasks for me - unasked - and without charge...

Re: Litter On The Common
Anyone who regularly uses the common will surely have noticed an increase in visible litter, fortunately not the large stuff, but the detritus of sweet papers and wrappers, till receipts, take-away bags, serviettes, cigarette packets, etc. Last week in a 10-minute amble, I filled a Sainsbury's bag. It is unlikely the litterbugs can be caught, but it is a known fact that litter encourages litter. If everyone picked up 3 or 4 pieces of litter each time they went on the common, and put them in the bins, we would be able to preserve, litter-free, our privilege of having common land to enjoy.
