Footpath group 
 
We are actively fund-raising to pay for 2 kissing gates to be installed on the White Horse Trail. Jane and Tony Billington have very kindly offered to host a KISSING GATE KOFFEE MORNING on 21st March to which everyone is welcome. Donations for the cakes and bring and buy are most welcome. See poster in this newsletter.
If you are interested in helping or donating or would like further information, then please Diane, the Parish Clerk, at clyffepypardpc@hotmail.com.
 
The appalling walking conditions have put a lid on activities in the field for the moment, but that has no deterred activity.
We have obtained some footpath direction signs from Wiltshire county and these are now available for anyone who has noticed where these are missing on footpath routes.
 
We are working with the Parish Council and local farmers to assist in replacing posts and clearing routes but work in fields is impossible until conditions improve – so please bear with us.
 
Finally, we all love our area and enjoy walking the paths, so please help us to keep them clear and usable by either cutting back any minor obstructions yourselves (many of us carry secateurs when we go walking) or reporting them to us via the Parish Clerk.
 
Keep walking

Mud on the Roads

 

We are receiving many reports from drivers about dangerous conditions being created by mud being deposited on the roads.

   This is not an uncommon problem at this time of year given the weather conditions and the agricultural community working hard in the fields. Unfortunately, the farmers and contractors may well be bringing significant amounts of soil from the fields and onto the road network whilst going about their normal business.

 

   Farmers and contractors are legally obliged to ensure that if their vehicles leave mud, and other deposits, on the road, they clean it up. There is also a legal requirement for them to place out signs compliant with the Traffic Signs Regulation 2016 to warn motorists of the conditions on the road. If they don’t, they could be liable for a number of offences under the Highways Act 1980 and the Road Traffic Act 1988. It is vital for farmers and contractors to know their responsibilities when it comes to leaving mud, and other deposits, on the road and particularly the consequences of not conforming to the law. 

Cleaning mud off of agricultural vehicles prior to going onto a public highway should be done whenever possible to help keep the roads safe. Although cleaning mud off agricultural machinery is inconvenient it may not be a defence in law.

There is more advice for farmers on the rural communities pages of the force website:

ROADS…….It has been reported that there have been a number of accidents in the Parish.
