Opinions Wanted On Increase In Large Lorries Through Village

It was raised at the Parish Meeeting last night that we ask for village opinion regarding the general increase in large lorries through the village to see if there was significant support for talking to our MP.

If you have concerns Susan Smith would be grateful if you could let her know in writing. She would be willing to take this further if there are significant concerns in the village.
