Stories from the village
The Telephone Box
The Parish Council has recently adopted the village telephone box from BT. We now maintain the box and are looking for volunteers to help with this. We also are seeking ideas on uses for the box. A book share scheme to use the box is in the planning stages.
The Parish Council recently helped to improve car standing/parking near to the church. This has improved the parking now for those using the church (for weddings etc) and for walkers parking in the village.
The village has a large number of footpaths and is a great starting place for walkers.
Currently the Parish Council is beginning to look at how to get a cycle path on the main road to help better link Ashby to Brigsley for cyclists.
