Synolda restoration

Villagers may be interested to know that ‘Synolda’, the 15 inch gauge steam locomotive which ran in the grounds of Sand Hutton Hall in 1912, is in a weak and fragile state! Having run on the Ravenglass Railway since 1980, she now needs careful restoration work over the next three years. More information about this popular engine, which made a re-appearance at Sand Hutton School in 2012, can be found at the link https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/ravenglasssynoldaaappeal

Glasses Found

As some of you know we had our son Rupert’s Christening on Sunday the 3rd of March. During this event and possibly in the Church an elderly relative of mine managed to acquire an additional pair of glasses that look to belong to someone else.

If you have lost some glasses at the church please let me know and I will try and reunite you!

Kind Regards

Pot Holes

The Pot Holes at the bottom of Whinny Lane at the junction with A64 were becoming dangerously large and very deep and so I reported to NYCC via their online service.

Just thought you would be interested to know the outcome and time sequence which has restored my faith in not only the process but also that someone reads and ‘listens’ because the very next day the very large deep one was filled in! Hopefully it will lead to further upgrading of the road surface.

Road condition reported at WHINNY LANE CLAXTON.

Your request has been passed to a highways inspector for further investigation. We aim to inspect all reported issues within 5 working days. Once the inspection is completed we will update your case.

The reported defect has been inspected and has been added to a programme of works. The County Council prioritises the repair of defects based on the level of risk to road users. Consideration is given to the scale and location of the defect in determining this risk.

Well done NYCC I say!

Plant fair parking

Please be aware that the public will be visiting Sand Hutton on Sunday for the Plant Fair; they will not be able to park at the Village Hall and so we are using the school carpark, But if numbers exceed the space, cars will be parked on the street. We hope that the event will draw a big crowd, and help us raise money to maintain the Village Hall, but we apologise for any inconvenience.
