It was a definitely a full house at the MPC AGM last Tuesday, with many villagers attending and seating rowed from front to back. The ‘hot topic’ attracting the crowds soon became apparent – traffic – especially the growing number of heavy lorries using the village as a route through to Manor Farm.
At times it was a heated debate. A mixture of problems, potential solutions and frustrations were voiced.
The debate over traffic – whilst a vitally important topic – somewhat overshadowed other issues. Katrina Saville announced she is stepping down as Chairperson after 6-years in the post (8 on the council). John Chaffey is also reluctantly stepping down after 6-years for personal reasons.
So, what do you think? If you were there, what was your take on the meeting? What should we be doing about the traffic situation? Do you have any messages for John & Katrina after their years of service?
