Street lighting

The lights at Studham Lane, Dagnall and at Church End, Edlesborough have now been repaired.

Traffic Calming

The Parish Council has purchased Speedwatch equipment which will be manned by volunteers and operate throughout the Parish - drivers are warned!!

Review of Charges

The General Purpose Committee have reviewed the charges for Edlesborough Memorial Hall, The Pavilion and usage of The Green by Sports Clubs. A review of the burial fees will take place in October and there will be an annual rise in Allotment rents in 2010.

Edlesborough Cricket Club

The Council were disheartened to be informed that due to shortage of playing members the Cricket Club would not be playing matches this Summer unless more players could be found. Cricket on Edlesborough Village Green has taken place for many years and it is extremely sad not to see this continuing.

Dagnall Recreational Track

Work is well under way creating the Recreational Track which will be of benefit to all parishioners enabling a variety of activities to take place.
