Anti-Social Road Use
In last week’s newsletter we reported on the disappointing response from the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership to BPC’s request for the installation of average speed cameras on Bury Hill to combat anti-social behaviour on the part of those motorbike riders and car drivers who create excessive noise and drive at speeds well in excess of the 50mph limit.
Cllr Paul Whyles reports that he has since had a message from the Chief Constable of Sussex, Jo Shiner, in which she reaffirms that she remains committed to looking at options that will assist our community. Katy Bourne, the newly re-elected Police and Crime Commissioner has reaffirmed her continued support, as has Andrew Griffith MP, in our efforts to achieve a sustainable long-lasting solution.
Bury Village Hall
We are pleased to report that the Bury and Pulborough Dance Club are resuming their Thursday and Friday evening sessions (in a COVID-secure format) in the village hall as from Thursday 27th May. With the Matt Fiddes Martial Group on Tuesdays and the Boathouse Ballet School on Wednesday having already resumed, we are well on the road to full occupancy once more.
