Some exclusive photos have been sent into Parwich.org showing the landslip, rediscovered mile stones, ongoing repairs near the original traffic lights and what looks like road widening!

Why not pop along to Church sometime tomorrow between 11am and early pm, for a few minutes or a couple of hours. A chance to catch up on the New Year’s news and gossip with some delightful music playing in the background. If you have any food or drink that you want to use up, (the diet regime starts tomorrow – so it’s a good chance to remove all that wicked temptation) bring it along and share with others. If your cupboards are bare, then pop along for a bite in exchange for a donation to help the Church.
Well the last couple of weeks has seen some freezing snowy weather, not the nicest time to be working on a building site, and certainly not on the roof. When the temperatures are suitable the block work continues to grow, with some of the walls, both internal and external being built and insulated. The scaffolding was erected last week to enable the roof joists to be positioned. The priority from next week is to continue the block work.
Work on repairing the B5056 at the landslip just north of the Bentley Fenny Bentley is to start on Monday 11th January. Here is the County Council’s update:
I can confirm that the start date for the Fenny Bentley landslip works is 11 January 2010. Along with nearly all civil engineering contractors and suppliers the Contractor for the works shuts down for a fortnight at Christmas, returning to work on 4 January. During his first week back he will be busy mobilising the plant, equipment and materials required on site. He will also have to arrange his site accommodation, mess and welfare facilities.
