We've had a number of requests over the past few months asking for cycle racks in the village centre so they have somewhere so securely put their bikes when visiting our shops.
At the moment bikes are propped against shop fronts which can block the pavement for pedestrians and against trees and the bus stop sign which can block off parking spaces.
We enquired with NCC to see where some could be put and they have arrived today and supplied and installed some for us!
The new racks are located behind the benches on King Street and beside the bins and post box outside of the newsagents.
The racks by the newsagents have the additional benefit of keeping the corner clear so it's easier for drivers turning left from Woodburn Road to see safely.
No parking spaces have been removed with the installation of the new racks.
