EMBERTON NEWS AND EVENTS
PARISH COUNCIL NEWS from the June 2018 Meeting
SPEEDWATCH – Two deployments took place in May; in Olney Road and on the A509. As a result of the deployment on the A509, the mobile police van attended the following day to enforce speeding.
BUS SERVICE THROUGH EMBERTON – Emberton Parish Council is working closely with Redline bus service and Milton Keynes Council passenger transport to remedy the situation of bus service 21 encountering problems with vehicles parked in Olney Road by The Institute. If you have experienced a problem with the bus service in recent weeks, please advise the clerk.
EMBERTON PARK – The Head of Environment and Waste at Milton Keynes Council, who is also responsible for the management of Emberton Park, will be attending the parish council meeting to be held in July to provide an update on the current situation of the park.
DAMAGE TO CLOCK TOWER – An estimate for repair to the clock tower and associated permits have been submitted to the parish council’s insurance provider in order that permission can be given for the work to be undertaken.
VILLAGE SIGNS – The parish council was provided with a design and estimate for three new Emberton boundary signs by Ringways, a contractor working on behalf of Milton Keynes Council. The signs were considered inacceptable due to the colour and design and an alternative estimate is being sought by the supplier of the signs produced for Olney and Haversham.
FLAG ON CLOCK TOWER – At various times of the year, the flag is flown on the clock tower to mark special occasions; more recently for Armed Forces’ Day on the 25th June. The parish council would like to thank the Harris family for undertaking this task.
HANGING BASKETS – The parish council would like to acknowledge thanks to Peter Wibaut who has put up hanging baskets on the ornamental street lights around the clock tower and for watering the flower troughs planted by Alban Hill Nurseries.
