Parking on Waterlow Road by Country Park Users

Cars continue to park on Waterlow Road and on the verges.
KCC offer a season ticket that allows unlimited parking in 8 of their Country Parks, including Trosley.  The season ticket costs £50 per year - that’s less than £1 per week.  It is proposed to pass this information on to people parking outside the Country Park.
If anyone reading this is interested, click here to take you to the KKC site where you can buy a season ticket; or you can buy one from Trosley Country Park  

You can help:
* by joining the Committee
*Signing up to the 800 club
For further information contact Danielle Howard at The Village Hall: phone 01732 823905    or click here to go to an application form

Your Village Hall still needs your help.
*The committee needs new members.
*Closure of many of the clubs using the Hall has resulted in a shortfall of funds.

REMINDER     It is NOT permitted to drive or park on Parish land.

This is particularly important at this time of year.  We do not want the verges in the Village turned into an unsightly patch of mud!
If anyone sees people driving on Parish Land, or has any information that they could pass on, please contact the Parish clerk.  The Parish Council will seek to recover cost of repairs to the verges
