Improvements to the junction with the A697
The Parish Council with the co-operation of the land owner and the farmer have dug up a hedge at the junction of the Oak Avenue with the A697 on the northern side and replaced the hedge with a fence. This follows a similar operation on the southern side which was done by the owners after various accidents had destroyed the hedge at that point. The result has been a great improvement in visibility for cars joining the main road from Glanton on what is quite a dangerous junction owing to the fact that cars on the A697 are often overtaking on the straight section of road and hence travelling very fast on the opposite carriageway. There was a near fatal accident at this point earlier this year, and the PC hopes that this work will make the junction safer for residents and visitors.
CHEAP(ER) HEATING OIL!!
Many local residents are now benefitting from the OilCAN community oil buying scheme – if you’ve been hesitating, now would be a good time to jump in & join us, as September is likely to see the lowest price oil this year (subject to international turmoil of course). Although there’s a small membership cost (£20 for individuals) it is highly likely that your savings on your first order will more than cover this – I saved £50 on my first order, and a Glanton resident was shocked to learn last winter that in the same week as one of the OilCAN deliveries, he had paid the same oil supplier £70 more for his delivery. Plus the environmental benefits of fewer tanker deliveries, all you have to be is a little bit organised, and the scheme makes that as easy as possible for you.
