September 2021: we have recently purchased, and installed, road safety mirrors at the western exits to the village beside Broughton Grove, and the bus stop. We hope this will help residents and visitors to join the “main road” more safely as it can be hard to see oncoming traffic, especially in the summer

We have also arranged to have the Common mowed and strimmed and the verges of the lane between the village and the bus shelter trimmed back. The Common looks so much better and we will be keeping on top of it from now on

March 2022: following the installation of safety mirrors, another mirror was requested to be installed on the fence adjacent to the bus shelter. This was purchased, and is now in place

We are also investigating the flooding on the Common, where there was once a culvert (last seen thirty years ago according to Mike Dobson) This will be dug out in the hope of finding a pipe that can be unblocked

The issue of potholes remains, and they are getting worse. We do keep reporting them but to no avail. Wherever you go in Cumbria there are holes in the road, and although that is no excuse, I don’t think we are the only ones being ignored

We are getting closer to having a defibrillator in the village and have had a meeting with a representative from Grange First Responders which was very interesting and productive
