Alton Towers Traffic

Message from Liz Greenwood at Alton Towers:

Hello all, just a heads up that we’re preparing for the annual end of term school visits which will be starting in earnest w/c 8th July. The traffic lights will therefore be out in Alton on Wednesday 17th, Thursday 18th and Friday 19th between 3pm and 6pm which are the three busiest days. As always, the lights will be at the top and bottom of New Road hill and there will be Stop/Go boards at all other junctions (Station Road, Malthouse Road, High Street, Knight Lane and Dimble Lane).

The team with the lights are from a traffic management company (supported by our own staff) and so have been trained to the required standard and we have a licence issued by Staffordshire County Council which means the lights are legal and must be observed. It is a very complicated structure as there are five junctions that need to be co-ordinated, so there will be delays. I am sorry about this, but our priority will be safety not speed, so please bear with us.

If you have any queries, please let me know.

Thanks

Liz Greenwood

Mobile Post Office/Mobile Library Service

Post Van
The Mobile Post Office Van has (again) changed the time for attending the village. It will still be on the Village Hall car park every Monday but will now be there from 9.30am to 10.30am.

Please use this as much as possible, as the more it is used the more chance we have of having it more than one day a week. The Post Office Van offers the following services

• Letter/parcel postage
• Personal banking services like cash withdrawal
• Savings
• Insurance services

If you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to contact Julie Sadler, the Parish Clerk, on 01335 324692 or email her at js.denstonepc@gmail.com

Also, there is a mobile library service that visits every third Wednesday 1.15 – 2.15pm.

They always have quite a good selection of books, including large print and audio books. You can also request specific books from the main Library to be brought onto the Mobile for the next visit.
It is linked to Uttoxeter Library, so books borrowed from the Mobile can be returned to the main Library and vice-versa.

Denstone Voluntary Car Scheme

EPSON MFP image
Supported by the Parish Council and Staffordshire County Council, this door-to-door scheme is being re-launched to help residents in the Parish who are without access to a private car and are also unable to use public transport due to infirmity, age or disability.

Passengers will pay a fare to the volunteer driver in accordance with set charges based on mileage and generally in line with public transport costs.

If you need to get to the Doctor, Dentist or Optician, or have a hospital appointment, we will try to help. For non-local visits to hospitals we will need 48 hours notice except in an emergency. The service will operate between 8.30am and 6.00pm on weekdays only.

The scheme depends on volunteer drivers and the more we have the greater the coverage and the wider the spread to volunteer time. Do you have a car and a few hours a month to help support our neighbours to feel less isolated?

For more details and to register your interest in either using the scheme or volunteering please contact the Coordinator:
Roy Smith,
2 Jasmine Cottages, Oak Road, Denstone.

Facebook Page Change

The “Denstone Neighbourhood Plan” Facebook Page has now been renamed the “Denstone Voice”. This page was used for discussion and public participation during the production of the Neighbourhood Plan, but since the completion of the NP in August 2016 it has been used for more general Denstone-related matters. Please feel free to use it to post anything to do with Denstone – e.g. events, questions, photos, videos, etc.
