Expansion at Claydon Primary

The plans to expand Claydon Primary to 2.5 form intake to cope with children from Blakenham Fields are almost ready to discuss with local residents.

The main resident concern will I am sure be parking and safety at the school entrance.  Busy parents or carers need to drop children off on their way to work, so they dont have time to walk to school despite the benefits the exercise brings.

If we could find money to resurface the car park at the recreation ground it would be more attractive.  The footway to the school would make it a safe option but the cost would be high.  We must get an estimate to see how big the task would be.

Unfortunately there is no space for a drop off point, a drive through school, where children could be handed to staff!

Bramford Today

Lots of people to talk to in Acton Road today, detailed views to soak up and tasks to do.  Potholes were the main complaint.  How is that they are repaired but fail in days or at best a few weeks?  Highways claim they are doing far more repairs as planed work with much less reactive temporary fixes but people are not seeing an improvement.

Thoughts while out Canvasing

It is amazing how County Highways can take so long to fix the potholes in places like Bacon Road, the approach to Claydon Primary School and Chapel Lane.  The road surfaces need replacement but remain in a sorry state.  Other roads are re-surfaced when they appear quite OK.

If there was an explanation (not an excuse) that we could see we might understand
