Queensbury 1940’s Day Committee Receive a Donation

On Friday 25th March 2016, Stuart Walker and Joan Milner, both members of the Queensbury Community 1940’s Day committee were presented with a cheque for £250 by Lynda and Paul Cromie.

This is to be spent on providing free afternoon entertainment to the residents of Queensbury at this year’s 1940’s Day to be held on Saturday 18th June 2016.

Last year the event was a success, more entertainment is being provided this year, therefore costs have increased, leading to a need to raise more money. This donation will certainly ensure that the event can take place. Many thanks to Lynda and Paul on behalf of local residents who will be attending this year’s event.

Dear Stuart

The purpose of this drop-in meeting is to provide information to the residents about the measures that will be implemented as part of the Harron Homes Development ie double yellow lines at the junction of West End and Deanstones Lane, Long Lane and Deanstones Lane, Long Lane and Valley fold, one way on the narrow section of Hill End Lane, no entry sign and banned right turn signs on Ford Hill and roundabout at Hazelhurst Road and Hill End Lane.

Simon is preparing these and will bring these to the meeting. I can let you have the copies of these when they are ready or leave paper copies with the councillors to pass onto to you.

We will then discuss other possible options that could be implemented such as the Closure of Long Lane, Closure of Deanstones Lane, a One way system on  Deanstones Lane / Long Lane etc and any others that residents may wish to put forward. We held a similar meeting in September 2010 as part of the proposed closure of Long Lane and residents at the time were against the closure and could not agree what action to take forward. This scheme was not then progressed.

I will let you have a list of the various options discussed and the residents views on these.

Regards.

Taj
