More Roadworks

Local residents will have noticed the road works on Amesbury Drive this week.  Water is being connected to the school site and two pipes have been laid under the road - one for tap water and one for fire purposes.  This will be the last of these road based activities because the school site now has phone/broadband, electricity and water.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
