The Royal British Legion ask for £10.00 for each large poppy (there are approximately 35 lamp posts in Main Street).If you would like to sponsor a poppy for £10.00 please contact Cllr Jean Oldridge on 01405 704271 or via email at email@example.com. Anyone who sponsors a poppy will be acknowledged in the November Marshland Messenger if desired. Thank you
Let's all pull together for this worthy cause and decorate our village with large red poppies as a symbol of remembrance.
Poppies will be displayed throughout November 2018
Reedness Parish Council are concerned about and continually receive complaints about speeding motorists through our village. In an effort to stop this we are to hire a "Speed Indicator Device" from ERYC which will be placed at each end of the village and will hopefully be installed in September.
This machine will hopefully make motorists more aware of their speed and slow down accordingly.
Can we also ask residents to remain vigilant and report offenders to the police on 101. The police require as much detail as possible ie car registration number,time/date of offence etc.
The parish council consists of 5 voluntary councillors and cannot eradicate this problem without your help, information and assistance.
Reedness Parish Council have now provided a new litter bin in the village. The new bin is situated across the road from the Kingdom Lane public footpath entrance. This bin can also be used to place any dog litter bags too. The bin will be emptied by ERYC .
Reedness Parish council has been alerted to more dog fouling within the village and would like to remind dog owners that if your dog fouls in a public place then please be courteous and pick it up.
