Women’s Institute

Ladies – our speaker for this Thursday’s WI meeting (18th) is Author and columnist Sue Woodcock talking about her very varied career from policewoman to shepherd (some of you may have read Sue’s entertaining diary from the Yorkshire Post when she lived on her smallholding above Grassington). We start at 7.30pm in the village hall at Sand Hutton and you’d be very welcome to join us for what promises to be another very interesting evening.

Sand Hutton Lane

Dear All

I have lived / worked in Sand Hutton for over 40 years and never seen the lane from the A64 to the village in such poor condition.

The lane was never designed to take the volume of traffic or size of vehicles that now tackle it daily.
Large commercial vehicles and ever larger tractors / trailers don’t feel the need to slow for oncoming traffic – they just pull onto the verge, depositing most of it across the road. They have such large wheels they don’t even notice, or care.

The road is simply too narrow to cope with the size and quantity of modern vehicles now using it.
It urgently needs widening and re-surfacing before either there’s a nasty accident or we have to dig our way out.

In order to get any attention from the council, I’m urging all residents of Sand Hutton and Claxton to visit the Highways Agency website and complete a complaint form at https://www.ryedale.gov.uk/report-highways-fault.html
It’s easy and quick to do, but needs many of us to complain before they even take a look..

All support will be much appreciated.

Kind regards

David Black
