Kenbourne Road residents petition
Posted by in
There is a petition to the council to Install double yellow lines at the turning of Rundle/Kenbourne Road and some sort of traffic calming to restrict the speed of traffic.

Residents would like to request that 2 things are taken into account and solutions found-

Turning right or left at the top of Kenbourne road is a dangerous procedure as cars are often parked right up to the junction and it is impossible to see traffic coming up or down the road before turning. Many Kenbourne residents have noted this and reported near accidents and there has been at least one potentially very serious crash at the end of 2019.

There are two reasons for this
1. Cars parked right up to the turning - Rundle road is a popular area for parking and this happens daily working hours.
2. the speed at which traffic travels after coming off the roundabout

This is a residential area with pedestrians, children and animals using the pavements and crossing the highway. As we know the road surface at present does serve to slow the traffic down. We are very concerned that the problems will be even worse once there is a new pothole free surface.

The petition can be found and signed HERE

Nether Edge Fair now open !

Click on the banner to get there.

Are You Going to Nether Edge (Virtual) Fair?

An imaginative new venture has launched to link local independent traders with customers.

Jean Allen has organised the Art and Craft Fair during the Nether Edge Festival for the last four years. She was starting to plan it in the spring when the world changed and it was called off.

When Jean heard of the cancellation of the Christmas Nether Edge Farmers Market she decided to do something to help local artists, craftspeople and producers during this difficult time. So (with a friend designing the website) in a week she has organised a virtual Fair, combining the Art and Crafts Fair, the Nether Edge Farmers Market with new traders.

"The response has been overwhelming, with many well-known names and new ones signing up. This website showcases the huge variety of creative talent in Nether Edge, and helps everyone to shop safely and locally."

Nether Edge Fair has dozens of stalls, with arts and crafts, food and drink - an ideal one-stop shop for presents and foodie treats. Everything you need for Christmas and beyond!

The website provides a permanent link between traders and customers, and will continue to run alongside the real life events once they return.

and new stalls will be added daily, so keep checking for new treasures.

If you would like a stall, please contact Jean via the website.

Let's look forward to 2021 Bonfire Night
Posted by in

 

A message from Tim Major of 72nd St Andrews Scout Group who normally light up Nether Edge every November.....

"Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is the first year in nearly three decades the Bonfire could not go ahead. As well as being a fantastic event enjoyed by the whole community, the Bonfire is the main fundraising event for the Scout Group.

We need your help!

In order to enable the Scout Group to continue to provide education, challenge and adventure to the young people of Nether Edge & Sharrow, and to ensure we can still put on the Bonfire in future, we're asking for your support. If you can, please visit our Crowdfunding page and contribute what you can......

We're hoping be back, bigger and better than ever in 2021!"

Abbeydale Street Trees news
Posted by in
News of a fantastic fundraising cycle ride organised by Sisi, 15, and Hetty, 14, who are pupils at King Ecgbert's (off Abbeydale Road). They have pledged to cycle 12km up and down Abbeydale Road each day - whatever the weather - until they raise £500 to pay for a street tree along Abbeydale Road! 
 
We have raised over 4k now (3.8k on the crowdfunder and the rest through separate donations and t-shirt sales) but there is still a long way to go to hit our 15k target. We are busy hatching future plans but if anyone has any other fundraising ideas please do get in touch.
 
Also our t-shirts are selling fast so if anybody would like to buy one for £30 please send us an email.
That's all for now.
Peace, love and solidari-tree ????
Enjoy our Farmer's Market safely

    • A new, continuous cough
    • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
