The Parish Council are arranging a petition to Worcestershire County Council to ask them to reduce the speed limit on the A44 at the junctions for Peopleton and Drakes Broughton. (Drakes Broughton Parish Council are also arranging a petition.)
If you wish to sign the petition, there is a copy in the shop. In addition, councillors will be visiting all houses in the village over the next few days to ask you to sign (of they have not done so already).
Elections for 9 councillors to the Parish Council will be held at the beginning of May. The current councillors would like to encourage parishioners to consider standing for the council; it is important that council is fully representative of the village.
The council meet on the second Wednesday evening of every other month with occasional extra meetings if required. The main purpose of the council is to represent the village, provide and deliver appropriate services, and improve the quality of life for the residents of the village. In particular, the council works closely with the District and County Councillors and Wychavon District Council, in considering planning applications and other matters relevant to the village.
For further information, please talk to the Chair of Peopleton Parish Council, Jill Phillips, or any of the existing councillors, whose details can be found on the noticeboard outside the shop.
