New recycled surface for Tissington Trail during winter closure

A 1.4 mile section of the Tissington Trail we be closed temporarily from 7 December 2018, to allow surfacing and improvement works to take place.

The Peak District National Park Authority confirmed the section involved will run from the Thorpe Car Park, and end at Spend Lane Bridge. Works are expected to be completed by the end of February 2019.

The closure will see re-surfacing – including the use of 100% recycled, WRAP (Waste Protocols Project) approved aggregates, a widening of the route to support its multi-user status, and associated ditch and drainage works. The temporary closure will also allow tree safety management to take place.

A Sad Event

Our beloved family pet has late this afternoon been hit by a car. What is frustrating is that the person driving did not stop. Fortunately Petra died instantly.
Could I please ask all those passing through the village to slow down, as it’s not only animals that I’m thinking about but children too. Just because it’s a 30 zone does not mean you drive at 30mph and or above!

We just don’t know… but every second counts.

It’s great to see so many people enjoying Wakes tonight, but please spare a thought for anyone requiring urgent assistance.
It was difficult for me to drive through the many parked cars tonight due to inconsiderate parking.
An ambulance would struggle and a fire engine could not get through.
This made me think tonight as I was due to join Sue responding for the ambulance service.
Please consider parking when publicising or arranging any large scale events.
Thank you

I wonder whether anyone has a spare cone to replace the broken one until this big pothole has been fixed. I will also report it (again) to DCC.
