Next Production: A Variety Concert
The Barrington Players, as well as the village hall, will be ten years old at the end of this year. To celebrate this milestone, our Company will be hosting a variety concert on Saturday 12th November at the Village Hall (for one night only). During the concert a two course hot supper will be served. Alcohol will be ‘bring your own’. The concert will feature many Barrington Players members. Our compere for the evening will be Les Collett, our very first 'dame' in 2006. The Box Office will open on 1st October.
ROAD RESURFACING IN THE BARRINGTON AREA
Good news: Barrington is going to have several local lanes resurfaced during this financial year. The locations due for treatment, and the provisional start dates, are detailed below for your information:
Muckleditch Road – Carriageway Surfacing, (06-07/03/2017) Map here
Shelway Lane – Carriageway Surfacing and Drainage works, (01-02/03/17) Map here
Windsmoor Lane – Carriageway Surfacing, (03-04/03/2017) Map here
"The planned carriageway surfacing works will be undertaken as part of a national winter damage programme funded centrally by the Department for Transport (DfT). Somerset County Council has been allocated approximately £1.1 million to address areas of carriageway that were historically prone to outbreaks of potholes, and other defects, following the severe winters. This additional funding will target sites where structural overlay or resurfacing is required. These schemes are of a substantial scale and are intended to take out whole sections of defective carriageway that would have been susceptible to further damage. If left untreated, areas of defective carriageway would result in significant and on-going financial pressures on our existing annual maintenance budgets, due to repeated defect repairs, and also potentially leave the Highway Authority vulnerable to future insurance claims."
PLEASE CLEAR UP AFTER YOUR DOG:
All dog owners are reminded to clear up after their dogs and to dispose of it in their domestic waste (double bagging it) or in the dog waste bins on the cricket field and on the footpath between Eastfield Lane and Barrington Court. Particular areas of concern are Shelway Lane, the field behind the village hall and the cricket pitch. The dog warden will be asked to patrol the village hall area again - you may be fined if you do not clear up after your dog. If anyone is aware of any person not clearing up their dog’s mess, please contact the Clerk who can forward a description of the dog and its owner to the Dog Warden. This information will be treated with complete confidence.
