VH Vandalism

A second bollard has been removed from the pavement outside the Village Hall. A VH trustee when interviewed said each one cost over £400 to replace. Criminal damage is suspected as this is the second occasion of identical vandalism and the bollard was removed from the site. The decision to install the bollards was made on safety grounds and passed through SGC Planing Permission without local objections. The police will be informed. Previously the area was used to park farm vehicles without consent.


Dyrham Traffic Sign

Following an articulated vehicle getting stuck by mistake on the twisty part of Sands Hill, residents appealed for signs to prevent a recurrence. Unfortunately, the siting of the one in the village was approved, apparently without consultation with the residents. SGC has now agreed to re-site this sign and, as a bonus, to modernise other local traffic signs.

The driver couldn't reverse, so, eventually the contents had to be unloaded before it could be moved. Sands Hill was paralysed for several hours. Police were in attendance. Authorities present at the site now realise the signage for HGVs at the top of Sands Hill is inadequate and smaller delivery trucks are needed in future for local deliveries ... Link
