Unfortunately we have had to extend the work until the 14/12 – this is due to underlying ground conditions, we have encountered a lot of soft spots under the road where we have had to excavate and then fill. This has added to the programme.
We will be trying to complete all our outstanding work as quickly as possible, as well as using the available weekends.

We have been made aware of a number of reports of individuals knocking on doors allegedly canvassing for money for the Child Brain Injury Trust. The calls that we have received have raised concerns that strange questions were being asked.
We have been in contact with this organisation this morning. It is based in Oxfordshire, and does not carry out door to door requests for charitable donations.
Fraudsters use the name of genuine and often well known charities to obtain money, and sadly this becomes more common as we head towards the Christmas period. We advise residents not to buy at the door. If you wish to give to charity, please ensure that you are able to make an informed choice, in your own time and be absolutely certain that you are giving to a genuine cause.
