Thanks to Su DeBar for establishing that work on the marked-up sections of the High Street will commence Monday 20 March 2017 and take up to two days.
Temporary traffic lights are likely to be needed so bear this in mind. At least it might help to slow out-of-village speeding traffic!

The coloured marks at strategic intervals on High Street pavements mean that Rutland County Council will be carrying out some re-surfacing work to selected stretches between the white arrows. The various coloured paints indicate the location of buried service cables and pipes.
The Parish Clerk advises that the work will be carried out before the end of the month, which just happens to be the end of RCC’s financial year.
Someone has just posted an item on the village website’s Freecycle/For Sale page. Have a look at it.
And as we are all turning out our garden sheds and having a general spring clean at the moment, now is a good time to remind everyone that the village website’s Freecycle/For Sale page is worth a shot if you have something too good to take to the tip.
And if you fail to shift it on the village website, there is always the Rutland group on Freecycle: https://my.freecycle.org/ and Gumtree https://www.gumtree.com/for-sale/rutland … both of which have a wider audience.
