Chedworth news with David Broad

THE parish council has its first face to face meeting since 2020 this Monday, May 17, a week later than the usual 2nd Monday of the month slot to suit the dates for Covid regulation changes.

With no clear guidance on the new Covid guidance, the council is having to work on the basis of 2 metres/ 6ft social distancing and sanitising and cleaning chairs.

So with a 50ft by 25ft area, space is rather limited and an in one door out another protocol will have to be applied.

THE meeting will be largely face to face but a representative of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust hopes to join by “Zoom” to talk about the possible takeover of the nature reserve on the former MSWJR railway by the parish council.

This will present an interesting challenge.

THE road down through Withington woods has now been resurfaced to a very high standard but pot hole enthusiasts need not despair for there are still a wide selection in the parish.

Some on the Calmsden road were repaired recently but many remain, including some outlined in white, presumably to help people avoid them when walking without a torch after dark.
