Winford Village Store and Post Office is closing down

Public meeting – Monday 10th September

You may have heard that Winford Village Store and Post Office is set to close, since it is no longer commercially viable in its present form.  Whilst we don’t know when exactly, it is likely to be very soon.

If a solution is to be found it will need everyone to pull together.  If you value the services a village shop and/or post office can offer the community and want something to replace it, then you must get involved.

The Parish Council has organised a public meeting where you can come along and offer your support, ideas and help.

Compost

Did you know that Winford Parish Council makes its own compost from residents’ green garden waste?  This is available now at the bargain price of £1.25 per bag or even free of charge  for lorry and trailer loads taken via a local weighbridge.

West Lane closure

18.30 Friday 29 July to 06.00 Saturday 30 July

Please note the urgent road closure of West Lane between the junction with the A38 and the access to Felton Village Hall. It is anticipated that the closure will be between 18:30hrs (Friday 29th July) to 06:00hrs (Saturday 30th July); there will be some advance signage at key positions to alert the general public of the works.

This closure is required to undertake urgent safety temporary repair works to the cattle grid; work will mainly comprise repairing a missing section of rail towards the centre of the cattle grid (in the offside wheel track) and securing the grid back down to try and stop it bouncing as vehicles pass over it, especially as they travel in the direction of Winford.

Spring Film Night – The Lady in the Van

The Lady in The Van (12) will be shown on Friday 15 April at Felton Village Hall.

The 2015 British comedy drama stars Maggie Smith and Alex Jennings. It tells the story of Mary Shepherd, an elderly woman who lived in a dilapidated van on writer Alan Bennett’s driveway in London for 15 years.

Doors will be open from 7pm and the film starts at 7.30pm with a short interval.  There will be a licensed bar so no need to bring your own drinks.  Tickets will be £3.50 in advance. Please call Judy Kiernan on 01275 472572 to reserve your tickets.
